To be completely specific, are these "weakest objections" you speak of
*only* the objections given during the survey, or are the various
proposals counted as objections against each other (when appropriate)?

I specifically avoided commenting on the polls with an objection to
the Change Proposals, as I felt that my objections were adequately
stated in the counter proposals that I helped author.

If the "objections" are only those that appear in the survey, I will
in the future avoid putting any effort into counter proposals, and
save that effort for objecting when the poll comes around instead.
This would be a bad use of process (it would be just moving the
counter-proposal phase into the poll objections phase), but I'm
interested in maximizing the effect of the effort I spend here.
