A VOTE thread without having a discussion thread first is unlikely to
not be hijacked by detailed discussion.
I think it will be more successful to collect input first and then
vote on something where all important input is featured in.
As soon as discussions start to evolve on a VOTE thread, nobody knows
what he is/has been voting for, really.
