Problem[edit]

You are in the middle of your weekly plenum. Everybody’s yelling, nothing gets done.

Implementation[edit]

Many geeks have very poor debate skills, the result of years of flamewars on the Net. Make people with actual social skills lead the discussion. Those with a background in real-life political work (e.g. student council) were best for our group. Learn from them. Learn not to interrupt others.
