Rick,

Yes, I reviewed the voting records for each of the three standards that I referred to.  Perhaps it could have been clearer, but what I was saying was that almost none of the upgraded members have cast a single vote, without trying to allocate who was at fault.  It's true, in one sentence I did say that "almost all" of the newbies voted against OOXML.  A better choice of words would have been "something more than most but less than almost all," or better yet, an actual count.  I got lazy there, partly because I wrote this blog entry in pieces in two airports, during a flight, and in a hotel lobby before posting which made it difficult to do as much fact checking as I usually try to do.
