Maybe, it is a good technique to gather the majority consensus

I think so

Mary, this came about because the system was effective during Sat's doc 
team meeting. (and it is used by other teams frequently too).

A point of dicussion was discussed, and when one participant had made up 
their mind on the point then they could use this system to specifiy how 
they felt about the point.

It was also so that people could tell when the discussion of a point had 
run it's course, so that we didn't have to keep going 'Stop!. Now what 
do you all think about blah' etc etc, and going over it again.

I like the system, but if you feel like talking or discussing instead, 
the go right ahead!! I don't think it is binding :)
