Nope! At least I don't ask them too often. :) I try to save up for the
really good questions. hehe

Except that when someone gets a grant level award (other than a GoA),
their OPs aren't updated with a GoA in addition to their grant level
award, where a person without a baronial service award who becomes a
B-I-F *does* get the service award added to their OP entry.
I certainly have no objection to this custom, but I think that the
service award should in fact read into law in court to make it valid.
Thanks Master Robin!
