Consensus has a range of definitions from unanimity to various levels of majority.

Since there must be one matter or issue being debated, any consensus begins from a sympathetic point of view with the power structure that decides it exists or that (at least) it is time for debating and voting. A dissensus may begin from the assertion that the concept is not worth debating or discussing - but of course it cannot be ignored if those debating it (sysops) will make a decision that affects also the trolls.
