I'm very sorry to hear that.  I don't want you to feel like you were 
forced out of the process, and I hope that with time you will 
participate again.

Just to clarify, it's not the policy of the W3C to vote on issues.  We 
conduct strawpolls to judge consensus, which is not quite the same 
thing.  Voting, I think, would create a mess of power blocs and lead to 
all sorts of divisiveness and rancor.  Ideally, striving to get everyone 
on the same page has a better, more technically sound outcome and 
promotes cooperation.  But it's slow and sometimes frustrating, I agree.
