You disagreed and we discussed and the proposal got changed, and amended
multiple times and a new vote was prospected with amended changes. I
don't think anybody said that discussing and changing the proposal on
technical merits (and there are/were) was whining ...

I think this thread is a bit whiny though, there is nothing technical,
only a complaint that voting is somehow unfair, funny how I never seen
complaining about voting when the complainers happened to agree with the
majority. Funny also how I've not seen other complain in the same vein
when they were minority and didn't agree with a vote, but respected it.


P.S: just to be annoying, the subject  is also misspelled, and that is
annoying too, should I throw a tantrum about grammar? SCNR :)
