So far I would put 13b hh5n Rh4n ed4w rb4w as my top choice as well and it'd be nice to gain the large amount of reserve back by using the "voice vote". If you played at the 5d time remaining (approximately 20 hours from now) that would put us back at almost 18 days reserve.
 
So if no one came up with an objection today I would certainly be in favor of you just playing it Ron.

My current top choice is also 13b hh5n Rh4n ed4w rb4w.
 
I agree that if there is even one request for it, then we should have the regular Condorcet voting process.  Indeed, even one private request to the Coordinator should be enough to trigger a formal vote, so that people don't feel too intimidated to speak up.  The right to a secret ballot should be fundamental, and (obviously) a voice vote can't be secret.
 
On the other hand, since there seems to be a clear majority, I support having the formal vote quickly to regain reserve.  I don't think the Coordinator should have the power to overrule any individual who wants the vote to be secret, but I do think the Coordinator should have the power to overrule individuals who want to prolong the discussion, if (in the Coordinator's opinion) further discussion is unlikely to change the outcome.  Using good judgment about the schedule is one of the main reasons to even have a Coordinator, rather than simply a rigid procedure.

The concensus is overwhelming.  I'm going to make the move now.
 
I agree with Fritzlein's comments about the Coordinator.  So far, TheMob has been very well behaved and hasn't needed much more than a nudge to conclude discussion.
 
Also, I agree that if anybody wants to talk to me confidentially, they are welcome to e-mail me directly.  If fact, it's already been done!

Yes, the situation is pretty straightforward now; pull-retreat seems to be the best move.
