Why Abstain?
Other -- I sometimes have no strong feelings, but want to see how experts I respect have voted. I can't see the names of who responded how unless I vote or abstain.

7-player teams?
Mel Coshamiro's Rule of "17"
"As they apply it, they will learn when the rule works and when it does not..." Pretty sure this is empirically wrong for the vast majority. I agree with using rules as starting points, but the problem is that too many teachers (maybe including Colchamiro?) stop at the rule and ...
