The CC0 thread was so enormous that it could sometimes be hard to
distinguish between the volume and the content behind each point made.

Now, the approval process is not a matter of majority vote, but still
I'm curious to see how many people felt the 4a objection (or any other
problem) was serious enough to warrant rejection, and how many would
approve anyway.  Knowing these ratios would help us determine whether to
continue investigating, perhaps by bringing in some more legal
expertise.  (For example, one thing I wanted to do, but didn't have
time, was bring in the people at the FSF who evaluated CC0 and hear
their reasoning.)

If you wish to participate in this straw poll, please follow up to this
mail with "+1" if you think CC0 should be approved, or "-1" *followed by
the reason* if you don't think it should be approved.

Any -1 that isn't accompanied by a reason I won't count in my tally.
(+1 responses have an implicit reason -- that the license fallback
portion of CC0 is OSD-compatible -- so there's no need to state it).
