I don't see that this procedure would take the place of either a rule or a guideline which states that conflicts of interest are to be avoided. Personally, I'm going to NOOP anything that affects a vendor of products which compete with Microsoft, even if I have direct knowledge of the bug. Just seems to be the ethical thing to do. We don't currently have a problem with other people doing anything wrong, and given the caliber of people on the board, I don't think we are in any real danger of having a substantial problem. I think that all we really need to do here is make a guideline, and then let Steven work personally with anyone who he thinks doesn't understand the way we work. We're making this whole thing a lot harder than it needs to be. My $0.02.
