In the whitepaper it is stated that a node
v accepts a statement
a iff either:
(1) There exists a quorum U such that v is in U and each member of U either voted for a or claims to accept a.
(2) Each member of a v-blocking set claims to accept a.
Nodes can accept a different value, than they voted for. Let's say I voted for
not a and see a quorum for
a except me. By definition of a quorum slice I am always included in any of my slices, hence there is no quorum, that I can see and I am not part of. So statement
(1) cant apply. Does
(2) apply here, because every other node blocks my vote and I will have to accept
a, or how can I determine if I need to accept a different value, than I voted for?
