I can't speak for the whole AC, but yes a bunch of anonymous faces 
popping up simply saying that they support the proposal, or not, would 
have less wait with me.  However, a number of people who seem to 
articulate a real understanding of both the technical and/or broader 
issues would have sway with me.

To me it really does count more if you can explain why you support 
something.  I'm not saying that you always have too.  Only that, if you 
are new somewhere and you want people to take you seriously, being 
articulate can't hurt.

Besides the world would be every boring if everyone agreed with you. :)
