I don't remember and don't have time to investigate if there has been such a
request. At least, the 4 months period that comes out of nowhere as well as
applying a new regulation to older misbehavior seem highly inappropriate.
And that's just for the objective side of the medal... personally I think you're
running a bit too mad about punishing CE here.

Somebody said 'Wichhunt' and this sentence indicates that you're just on a
personal campaign. Either this should be a vote for the committee or a
discussion but for sure not both.
But at least you've invited me to write what I think about that proposal, thanks.
