I suppose it's because of the relative ease in which proxies can be fkaed
under these circumstances. I could easily engineer an email from any
progsoc member that would pass cursory examination, as long as the
receiver didn't reply, and expect confirmation of that reply. Once again,
I may be too formalised for this, but we didn't accept proxies that
weren't witnessed unless the person was there and had to leave.

The task of collecting them and announcing them needs to be given to
someone; President, Secretary, whoever. They do need to be announced so
that when there are seven people voting for something and only four
against, no-one's surprised when one person's vote magically becomes
