Ick! No! I'd like to think that the judge has done some amount of thinking about the issue, and spent time looking at the arguments for and against. With a proosal, people just won't put in the same thought - I certainly don't spend as much time on voting per proosal as I do on CFJ judging. That's fine for proosals - we go with what we like. For CFJs, we need to go with what is actually the case. Different standards, different situation.

Are we having such a problem? I hadn't noticed one. If we are, some kind of appeal system would be a better solution. And would be greatly desirable anyway - even unbiased judges make mistaeks.
