If a person doesn't have the time or inclination to read into the details of an RFC, and also doesn't have time or inclination to engage in discussion about it, and also doesn't have the time or inclination to give even the briefest of justification about why they are casting their vote a particular way to help inform future discussion... Well, they shouldn't be casting a vote in the first place. That's not to suggest everyone should need to be able to analyse the patch line by line, but if a person is cleary *that* disengaged then IMO they should do the honourable thing and refrain from voting.
