Boffo's Law: In any argument on the Internet, the person with nothing better to do will invariably outlast his opponent and declare himself the victor.
In the sixties, that was how the radicals would "determine the sense of the meeting." They would organize a big "campus-wide open discussion" and talk endlessly until 2 a.m. By then, everyone with a lick of sense had gone to bed. So that's when the radicals would hold a vote, and sure enough, their measure would pass!
