My bigger concern is if we penalize players for not voting; a weekend out of 
town could be costly.  As submitted I'd vote against the proposal for that 

I'm not so worried about "many" proposals.  If there are too many proposals 
active, vote AGAINST them all.  However, "protoproposals" are a good idea 
especially for complicated or controversial proposals.  ("A player must send 
one dollar to the player at the top of the list, and add his own name to the 
bottom of the list" would probably be a risky proposal to submit.)
