No defeatist attitude here either. Your quoted words in a sentence with my name attached kind of imply I said those words. I absolutely didn't say it or even agree with it.
To begin with, I have thanked you for your efforts to try to improve the rules in multiple threads, even thanked you post posting them for review ahead of printing them (even though that isn't what you actually did it turns out).
I cited a stance violation issue I had this year and your suggested stance violation rule improvements don't even address my issue.
I still believe the reason the rules aren't enforced are people issues, not the wording of the rule.
I am all for rule improvements that address the problems with the rules.
My opinion is that this rule change doesn't resolve the problem with stance violations.
I think that is a valid, reasoned, and defendable position even if it doesn't align with your position.
