The logic breaks down at claiming it wasn't legal to begin with; a loophole many have glommed onto and tried to close in the past.

Thanks, I had not read his whole thesis.

I get it now, and will loudly state my support for reinstating the guidelines.

This asshole's aggression will not stand, man.
Splitting lanes, and splitting hairs.
