I'd like to add that in the end, when it's decision meeting time, I
really prefer not to return items unless it's a sure deal thing that
they would be returned at Laurel. Sometimes that decision can be a
little bit difficult, but where possible I prefer to err on the side
of the submitter and let the item have a chance at Laurel. There's
many more resources at that level, particularly with some of the
commenters and their extensive experiences with some of the more
obscure naming practices out there. Though I can't speak for Alasdair,
my understanding is he worked mostly the same. So as a general rule,
I'd tend to agree with Emma, our pass rate is likely not artificially
increased by a higher than normal amount of returns.

Andrewe, who is going to go look at the statistics now, out of sheer curiosity.
