    That's what Dice thought, too. Look how that turned out. The community does the work. The editors are there to facilitate that. Moreover, there's a well-known problem with bias related to speaking order and authority. The first person to speak, or the person speaking from a higher up position in a hierarchy, acts with undue influence on the remainder of any discussion. The Mission Management Team for Columbia thought that was a great strategy.
