I regret to say that I have not had time to read this entire thread, but I have read enough to want to assert one thing.

I do not think this is a "wuzrobbed" scenario. I think that some people are simply trying to say that, in their opinion, the rules need changing. That is a very different claim from saying a skater "wuzrobbed" under the present rules. It is, rather, an advisement about the future of skating, which everyone has a right to offer, and most especially, Olympic medallists of yesteryear.

I am a fan of all three of the ladies leading after the SP, by the way. I do not have time right now to contribute to the discussion any further, but I do think the discussion itself is legitimate and valuable. If no one were ever allowed to say the current system needs certain changes, then there would be little point in having discussion boards in the first place.
