one of our criteria for red cards is to have been involved in the
decision making process earlier. I imagine that somewhere between
"hermit" and "at all the meetings" is some vague place for the line,
but I feel it gives us an out for keeping someone from stopping our
process in its tracks.

On the other hand, there is no limit on green cards and good ideas
from folk no matter whether they were involved before or not.
