No, lack of discipline and common vision and good-heartedness
makes people fight and voting subsequently fail. Why did it
work in Berlin? Because we weren't a**holes to each other.
Because we weren't pulling out the guns. I am a "guns kill
people" activist and I'm promoting the idea of banning guns
in Pirate Parties.

What I mean by that is for example to proactively intervene
when people put on fighting tones on mailing lists or when
they shitstorm on Twitter. Not just intervene because we are
nice but intervene because there is rule of law whithin the
party. Currently there isn't, and we are bleeding out because
people are shooting with guns all the time and no-one stops

Incorrect. Minorities get weeks of debating time to bring
forward all the facts that should make the majority understand
the issue from their point of view.

Of course that doesn't work if everyone is busy shooting with
guns instead of empathically reading proposals from minorities.

So I keep saying, it's not the software that is failing.
It's the lack of rules in our digital political party.

But I know that you are already so bitter about it, you will
not seriously consider my words.
