That's not how the PPML works. You don't have a vote and neither
do I, so you're so-called vote doesn't counteract anything.

That's not how the PPML works. This list is not just for the elite
who have the spare time to pore over complex policy changes. It is
for everybody with a stake in Internet addressing policy. 
Like a canary in a coal mine, it can be very valuable for the
average reader to pipe up and say, this proposal is just too
complex. This is a valid reason to reject a proposal, and it
is not the only reason that I reject this one. I also have not
seen a clear statement of what problem it is trying to solve.
