Using ‘Block’ vs ‘Disagree’ for a proposal
What does ‘Block vs ‘Disagree’ means when deciding on a proposal? IMO, ‘Block’ should be used when something compelling and directly affecting your area of contribution is considered high risk and therefore needs to be known by everyone in the voting process. This means that you should be able to clearly articulate the impact. Additionally, Blocking something denotes you have certain authority that others may not have when making that decision. Agree or disagree is what we are trying to determine and see how consensus could be ultimately reached. For those who use the ‘Block’ to voice your opinion, makes it seem that you are not open to a healthy dialogue that reaches a sound decision.
