If that's true then why any proposals aimed at reducing the power of 
"delegation kings" (users who through delegation chains accumulate so 
much voting power they can decide on issues single-handedly) are being 
ardently opposed by the LQFB supporters?

On a more general level: I have to warn everybody who is thinking about 
employing LiquidFeedback (or any other tool that aims to play a 
significant role in political processes, for that matter) that there are 
lots of fine details and problems which tend to crop up and can lead to 
serious controversies if not addressed in advance. While carlo is right 
that Liquid Feedback is widely used and accepted in Berlin, it is a very 
controversial topic on the scale of the entire German Pirate Party with 
attitudes ranging from enthusiastic to disdainful. So be careful!

Best regards,
