we all receive a lot of emails (I must be around 500~1000 a day for W3C mailing-lists).
When replying, think about how moving the resolution, the consensus forward. There are many ways to do that:

* Asking for clarification
* Suggesting prose for a specification
* Giving *concrete* examples (happening now in the world)
* Showing, explaining *existing* implementations 
* etc.

Think that anything that is discussed and/or proposed has to be implemented and that the will to be implemented exist among participants. No matter we wish a feature, if there is no practical move in implementing it among participants, it will not happen. 

"+1", "I disagree", etc. doesn't help moving forward in creating something concrete.
