presumed/alleged offender? see also that wording in priority assignation
below. innocent until proven guilty.

* A Tidbit, which is either the word "cheese" or the numeral "3"

what about creampuff?

Reasoning clarifying the intent of the Quorum may also be submitted.

should the player who submitted the quorum have 1/2 or zero?

this is the case where there is only 1 or 2 active players... I was going to
say that maybe we just shouldn't have these if there aren't any more active
players than that because it could lead to abuse, but then such a situation
would be much more open to abuse by the oracularities and proposals systems
