Thank you for that, Jugular.

I should try to remember that in the current climate, both in here and in the world generally, we aren't allowed the luxury of vague defenses of our stupid opinions.

Freely stipulated: I don't always achieve the level of precision with language that I'm going for. I blame television. And Hilary, of course, because everything is her fault. :\

ah right, it's just a fake advantage. I got you now! :doh:

We recently had a vacancy and I had about 50 applications to join. There is absolutely interest in being on this committee.

I would enjoy being on this committee.

Careful with that head, sir. Precious cargo contained within.

Not sure if I need to say it differently, but here goes:

I am very sorry, Robdeforge, for being careless. I really did not think of any advantage at all to missing the marked lie by an inch or two one way or the other. When it was pointed out to me that there is an advantage in not thinking about the lie, it put a whole new spin on it for me.
I could have spent a little time trying to explain that I DO think about the mark, even though I don't care to look at the success or failure rate of others to stay within the proscribed distance. I could have said a bunch of stuff about how intent is such a huge part of any infraction, be it in our game, or in societal norms; and that the key phrase in those Rules, in my estimation, is "willful or purposeful circumvention."
I could have gone on for two or three paragraphs, easy.

But I was lazy. Or pressed for time. Sometimes, the former is an inference resulting from the latter. I hope I have made it a bit clearer, so that you and I may continue in our fellowship without rancor. Or something.

In any case, I remain,

apologetically yours,

and your humble servant,

=ER=

I think it far more about being pragmatic and practical than transparent.

If the committee members’ identities are not publicly known that’s bad operations and a bad look. A secret cabal should not be making disciplinary decisions. The PDGA really makes me scratch my head sometimes.

I don't agree with it either. I'm just answering the why.

Check out the process. The President is the only who ultimately makes the decision and that is absolutely not private.

that is just referring to player misconduct. you don't apply that standard of intent to calling each and every rule violation. :thmbup:

IMO intent should have as little place in the rules of play as possible.
