Re: Riverside BOS Oct 6 So, anyone dug out the rules about these three-minute periods. The supes seem very skilled at shutting down questions, which is a shame, because awkward silence (when awkward ONLY for the target) can be an extremely effective tool. The point being not to get an answer, but to expose the unwillingness or inability to provide one. Happened to new-Anon (well done tho!!) and to the old guy. "This is your time to speak, not to ask questions" kind of thing. Well - what do the rules permit? Any reason not to wait on or push for an answer, forthcoming or otherwise?
