  •  Those pesky fingers. (4+ / 0-)

    What they did which isn't so obvious is make it very hard for strong willed or big mouthed people to monopolize the group. People who might not be willing to speak against a budding tyrant can just stand there with their hands down. Passive power that keeps a blowhard from taking over without true consensus. As someone who isn't above monopolizing my way to being in charge, I recognize the power of the fingers -lol.
