Inner Circle -> Whole circle LO11922

Clyde brings up the idea of a defacto 'inner circle' on the LO based on an
undefined credibility that these people have been given by the rest of the
group. He says,

"There are a few people who seem to hold great sway in what this group
thinks and responds to. This is done by their interest or attention."

So my questions are, first what is the mechanism by which this happens,
second, what are the negative consequences, and third, how would we change
this -- as individual participants, as Clyde feels there is not a
conscious group conspiracy -- to change this.
