I don't think this is really inappropriate - it's still a free country.
  The review manager has total authority to consider whatever input he
deems appropriate and way different inputs differently. It's not a
voting scheme. This demonstrates the special genius of our review
process and it's framers.

I'm glad I'm not the review manager as he's going to have to spend
serious time to summarize all this coherently.
