This is not the precedent. Authority has not been delegated. SLOBs
is still making the decision:
"'The Oversight Board will review and ratify Decision Panel [report]'"
The decision panel is going to be told what the question(s) it has to
report on is...so let's not pat ourselves on the back on being

Is this your personal opinion or SLOB's? It seems broadly phrased if
the former, contradictory if the latter.

All I see is a lot of unproductive reinforcement of 4. "let's talk a
lot about tangential stuff to the detriment of letting SLOBs get on
with answering the original question[1,2]".
Like I said: "It's not hard to say 'no', but it takes a > 150 post

long and with such obfuscation".
