    Actually, if I was to go over the discussions about rule changes and additions in the ten years of being involved in archery and this forum, I would categorise their stages as:
    1. Introduce concept of new rule.
    2. Discuss wildly outrageous consequences.
    3. Random expressions of outrage.
    4. Experience not the merest change for the ever lengthening time since the new rule. Everyone forgets about how it was going to contribute to the downfall of humanity.
    Status is not defined by the amount of gear in your signature.
    Performance cannot be purchased.

      You forgot
      5. Rules changed back to original rule with archers forgetting this was once a rule and declaring the End of Days.
