Subject: I'm not sure who said it was fairest, because I have always said rotating is fairest, but it is fairer than fixed panel without dropping high and low. If you review the marks sheets in detail after the competition, you will see that it does help with fairness.
In reply to: Odd 's message, "In which case all the "this is the fairest way, it does away with all the anomalies" isn't really true at all when it comes to final results. This seems like a half and half system. Highs and Lows dropped in some places, but not others." on 14:13:38 07/02/17 Sun

I've been at this a long time, and I have seen all sorts of different ways marks are done. I'm not really sure what you are thinking, but with a set panel, there would be no way to keep out the dropped scores from the recall for the final placement and make it work at all. That really would not make any sense. Dropping the high and low scores is really only a mechanism to make the final placement more of an average rather than based on one extremely high score or one total tank - which I have seen multiple times over my 15 years in the activity.
On the high side, I have seen a girl miss out on winning NANs because one judge gave her a zero and I mean she was robbed; all she would have needed was 2 Irish points from the judge to win. On the low side, I have seen a girl world qualify at the O because one judge gave her third while all the other judges didn't even have her in recall position.
In both those situations, as in many others, if the high and low scores were dropped, the dancer's final placements would have been more in line with the majority of the other judges.
