Well, I crunched through it, and would certainly encourage others to do so.

I have to say this "gobby" concept looks like a well-intentioned
notion that people are just likely to find confusing.  When you ask
people to "vote" on some alternatives, they don't expect it to be an
evolving, expanding list of alternatives that anyone can add to at any
time, and I can't imagine how you can report the results in a way that
will make sense-- the number of "votes" an answer gets depends on when
it was added to the list.    Could I go back and "vote" again on the
new entries that were added after I voted this time?

(As for the hot topics here, it's kind of drag that the "Community
Affairs Team" blundering around has gotten us stuck in culture wars
