Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, and I tend to prefer mechanisms based on moving-foot voting rather than raised-hand voting. When people vote with their feet, they get what they choose, and hence have reason to invest serious thought in the choice. When they vote with their hands, they tend to be relatively thoughtless,because their vote is almost guaranteed to make no difference. Worse, their thoughtless choices (en mass) impose the results on the unwilling -- which, when policies are implemented, is apt to include themselves.

(BTW, regarding shareholder lawsuits, where does the settlement money come from?)
