I wonder whether the Mob suffered from groupthink to some extent, avoiding conflict and dissension in search of consensus and cohesiveness.  The Mob can gain an advantage from consensus, namely moving more quickly under time pressure, but must suffer when there is less variety of thought, i.e. fewer strategies proposed and members being too willing to go along with what others proposed.
 
In reviewing the comments, I notice that consensus voice votes became more and more prevalent later in the game, and even earlier in the game our dissension was sometimes confined within very narrow bounds.  I'm curious how other Mob members view this in retrospect.  Were we sufficiently unruly?
