"this has happened before" - what in all worlds has happened, anyway? 
We've come up with that contest idea on this list, and we made a news 
item to spread the word. The initial discussion goes on, and on, with 
positive insight, as well as criticism - the usual, AFAICT.
Where is your problem? We hardly can be more open.

Haiku is a community effort - *everyone* who contributes is a member of 
Haiku. Anyone who contributes has something to say. There will be many 
situations where we have to do important decisions, and those can only 
be done by extracting the common sense of these discussions. Those that 
contribute the most have the most to say, naturally; that's kind of a 
reward for your contribution. But that still means that we have to 
agree to something, and there will always be people who won't like our 
decisions - there just should be many more people who will.
