That doesn't make any sense. Again, I did not reference that late July
paper from EFF until you incorrectly linked my postings to it (i.e.
until today). I brought up the topic of elimination of the sunrise
period on April 13, see:


"A Brave New World Without Sunrises or the TMCH"

EFF made their formal proposal to eliminate the sunrise on April 19th,
after I had already made my views known:


The August 10th thread you mention:


was **2 weeks** after the EFF paper, and had absolutely no relation to
it. To suggest it came "on the heels of it" is incorrect.

I was referencing only the formal call for elimination of sunrise that
they made back in April (i.e. an ongoing proposal that our PDP is
tasked to consider).

That July paper:


is completely unrelated. They don't discuss the 99% reduction in
sunrise utilization. I was the one that first discussed that 99%
figure, in order to support their April proposal.
