Agreed, but it needs to be a clear procedure. "more positive than
negative" isn't a clear and comprehensible criteria as it leaves much
room for discussion. Fixing broken rules with another
may-be-somewhat-broken rule won't help us.

Count me in as well for that idea. Having that "nobody" person running
in the election allows us to have a clear and comprehensible breakup
between those candidates who could easily fill a gap and those who don't
(and therefore when it's time to hold an election for a person filling
that gap). It still leaves one question open: What to do when "nobody"
is elected on the 5th or 6th position (or even the 1st ...)?
