Taking our cues from liberal institutions is a bad idea. Creating 'formal', 'legitimate' processes will only serve to bureaucratize us and render us indistinguishable from the institutions we seek refuge from, while alienating people who aren't properly schooled in 'raddle-law'.
Furthermore, tackling issues that arise using pre-determined responses instead of treating each issue as unique will be an emulation of the deciding and punishment mechanisms we rally against everyday as radicals.
f/meta remaining informal is integral to raddle's wellbeing. When we start to see ourselves as an authority, when we institute overly-complicated and semantic 'formal' procedures and requirements to participate in the deciding mechanism, anarchy is lost. Having to declare a proposal a 'motion' in the title for it to count is a fine example of this.
Resist all attempts to turn our deciding mechanism into a machine. Informality should be celebrated. We're people, not formulas.
