Ah, understood.

Well, there was already discussion on this vote option (i think it was
on the vote thread itself). The argument for this option to be valid
was:"my opinion was not shown in that list". The voter explained he
does support it, but does not have cycles to put hands on the move.
Therefore the vote opener might add him to the plus one as Dennis did.

In my opinion, as long as it does not cause trouble, we should not be
so strict about this.
