All the same, I don't think it's necessarily a good thing to bring
thousands of voters into a decision making process where they have
responsibilities to moderate their exercise of rights. It will just
become factional and partisan based on external agendas.

I believe that it is crucially important to allow as many voices as
possible to be heard, and the consequent monitoring process is
facilitated by the implementation of a tool such as Decidim so,
BoD & Community can decide about the issues that matter to us.

Please don't confuse "making voices heard", which is generally good,
"offering them a vote", which is generally problematic if they do not
any responsibilities upon which their votes might rely and especially
they are willing to vote for ideas they don't fully understand on the
only of personality or identity. Decisions made in that way have bad

This is not about offering to vote (wich can be disabled in Decidim which I know better than other 
tools) but about providing a support to a comment. It's very different because that allows people 
not fluent in English to give an educated opinion and partipate. It's easy when you're fluent to 
express yourself, and it takes hours to one who is not, most of the time he will abandon before.
