I think I understand you.  It's an inherent problem with the way we do 
discussions that a crowd can effectively silence objections from a 
minority by drowning them out with messages.   I simply do not agree 
that it's the minority's job to silence themselves so that the crowd can 
drown them out.

I will, however, try to avoid repeating myself if I've already raised 
the same objection.
