- I don't have the spare bandwidth to participate in a particular debate
- I am a member of an organization that *is* participating in the debate
- The members of my organization have authorized one person to speak
on their behalf
Are there any circumstances, short of individual proxies, that would
allow that organization to carry with it into the debate the added
authority of the members who did not have the time to participate or vote
(Keep in mind that if the answer is "no" and that the alternative
solution is to ask all of an organizations members to vote online, then
we also need to address whether we have the technological capability, or
funding, to handle such voting or verify it.)
