I would answer that with a famous quote:

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Like anyone else who is silently reading this list i would encourage you 
to speak up and express your views on matters discussed here - or bring 
up your own subjects of interest.

I find your comment a refreshing and positive contribution but in 
general one of the reasons why we had such an often excessive volume of 
discussion with a bad signal to noise ratio here in the last weeks is 
because quite a few people saw something actionable in form of the 
elections and spoke up because they wanted to influence the 'public 
opinion' rather than because they has something of substance to say.

So don't speak up primarily if you see something actionable but speak up 
if you can bring a new perspective to one the matters discussed that 
can lead to new insights among the participants and this way brings the 
discussion forward.
