2/3 identifiers agree, but observation not research grade

Recently, a number of grass records have failed to get Research Grade when the first ID was wrong, the next two right. Example, https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/26325106. I thought records were supposed to be Research Grade when two out of three identifiers agreed.

This is especially frustrating because people don’t like to identify grasses and getting to three identifications is hard, getting for four unlikely!

The threshold is >2/3, this one is at 2/3
