-<li>-1 I object on the following grounds</li>
-</ul>
-<p>If you object you must support your objection and provide an alternative course

-of action that you are willing and able to implement (where appropriate).</p>
+<p>+1 (means I vote positive)
+   You can say why you vote positive but it's not a must-have.</p>
+<p>0 (means I have no strong opinion, aka abstention)</p>
+<p>-1 (means I vote negative because of the following reason)
