Here @phildaian argues that on-chain voting, including quadratic voting, has security holes: I would take it further to argue that voting in general is not a good decision making process for blockchains.

Layer 1 governance is not socially scalable unless we either ruthlessly minimize the number of issues it addresses or sacrifice some of the key properties that give a blockchain value.
