If it's not too much of a bother for you, I'd be curious about your take on trends in the SC (like the recent wave of symbolic resolutions), and why you think Rule 4 was implemented since it has caused so much damage.

I went missing for 2.5 years so I'm not the best person to ask on trends. The SC, like anywhere, can go through fads. One person passes a symbolic resolution, then everyone wants a go. It dies out quickly enough once everyone gets tired of them and the regulars shout them down.

Rule 4 caused massive divisions in the SC when it was implemented, as gameplayers felt they were being marginalised in favour of a forced RP style to make GA players less unhappy about the introduction of the SC.

Long-term that's worn off. Gameplayers are more than capable of passing well-written resolutions in the language they want to use, oh, and GA players for the most part still dislike the SC.
