Good point. I've noticed that as well. We get to a point where everyone has made their position fairly clear, but there's no consensus. And then things linger..

I've tried a couple times to restart the discussion with a summary of the current positions and disagreements, but that doesn't really do much to resolve the disagreements themselves.

I'm not really sure what to do in this case either. Perhaps a default response would make sense. Another option would be that when we reach an impasse, we reach out to the author and invite them to address the concerns directly.
