Stating the policy _that_ time, however, wasn't a problem at all.

It's interesting, though, that not only did no one else propose a GR to
support that policy at the time, but you didn't propose a GR to set the
policy you believed was correct either -- even though you opposed the
decision, apparently thought that it was against the social contract,
and you're now claiming that you thought the GR process was the right
way to make that decision at the time anyway.

Why, you'd almost think that there was an ulterior motive here somewhere.

Also, the only thing I did was make the policy explicit; it hasn't
changed until now in the entire time I've been in the project.
