Yes, I know. The way the contract works is this:
- People submit micro-proposals
- Every week, I create and pend a proposal with all of the micro-proposals 
submitted that week
- If adopted, the PROPOSAL simulates an Agoran Decision for each micro-proposal 
and “adopts” (gives power to) the ones which get enough votes
