I disagree. can you describe how exactly? What exactly can be gamed,
if we use the protection described by me? It will provide the same
security as directory authorities already have for voting about
relays. It's true that ultimately anything can be gamed, but if it's
not trivial to do or likely to happen this is an option we rather have
than not have.

>> An alternative solution is to make the voting a two-step system:

>> disregard the vote.
