Of course, I don't think Norbert was literal characterizing the situation as a gulag. I don't think anybody here thought he was. I don't think Norbert expected anybody to have an image of him starving to death or chilled in the steppe... Norbert rightly mentioned several aspects he considers unfair about the way this process went. He considered he didn't get a right to be heard, nor notified about the process as it was progressing towards a decision, but only notified about a final decision. I completely agree with him. and I don't think DAM's view, "he can reapply in six months, what's unfair about it?", is fair.
