Third option is that we agree on 2/3 majority.

I am against blind majority (i.e. with 4 for and 3 against a motion
gets passed even if the objections are really good and showstoppers).

Steven is against unanimous (i.e. with 34 for and 1 against a
motion gets vetoed even if the objection is poorly stated).

With 2/3 majority and a quorum of 9 people, if you have 6 for and
3 against the motion gets passed.  I also stipulated that the voting
time is open for a whole week.  That leaves room for the nay sayers
to voice their opinion and possibly sway the vote, although at that
point it is more likely that the nay sayers vote will be swayed.  It
also leaves room to have time to think thoroughly about a proposal
and have a good feeling after the voting is closed.
