I do.  Every day : "There is a small but finite chance..."  I can weigh the
odds and make a choice, as negative consequences of not getting out of bed
have much higher probability.

So I risk my toe.

Doesn't take higher math for that one...

I'm not sure about that.

Of course.  The proposal was clearly facetious (why else would I veto my own
proposal...)  So the solution isn't that.

Nor is it punting when faced with an issue.

We have the ability to affect change on this thing I believe is a problem.
(One answer is "It's not a problem" I suppose...)

The only answers I hear are "Things are fine" or "Tomorrow..." or "That's
prevented by the rules".

I know it's hypothetical, and has been ruled to be a waste of bandwidth, but
what about the "log4j crew" vs "logkit crew" in the the "everyone gets to
vote irrespective of contribution" model?  Maybe it's a subject for offline
