Voting Woes

Amazing that the porbeagle shark got protected status at all given this:

So the chair ordered the technicians to reset the system. Before a new vote on the porbeagle, a test was ordered. “Could everyone please vote ‘Yes’ now?” he said. After thirty seconds the chair said he had received votes from everyone in the room, and that the system was working. He then observed dryly that of the 137 nations that had been supposed to vote ‘Yes’, seven had voted ‘No’ and two had voted to abstain.
