Chairs who judge consensus by looking at the room aren't following IETF process--consensus is judged on the mailing list.  Hums are useful for figuring out why we _don't_ have consensus, and for _getting_ to consensus, but if you were to judge consensus by hums or a show of hands, then you'd be taking a vote, wouldn't you?

Let me return to the start of this discussion.

It seems to me that the LGBTQ peoples concern about a meeting in
Singapore is real, at least it is perceived to be real.

I don't think anything that is within our power to do can change this
perception.

Thus we need to take this seriously, the concerns is about our upcoming
meeting in Singapore. That should be our focus.
