Yeah that is the point I'm trying to make. Submission date deciding priority is wrong to the point of being an outrage. It should be seniority. For 2 reasons:Because it goes by submission date not seniority in that case.
1.) Because it should just be seniority. Even without the presence of any other factors. This is a no brainer. Because it's more important that submission date.
2.) Because the submission date has no integrity. Even if you lived in bizzaro world where this date was more important than seniority it would still be useless because the process of ERR submission is inherently flawed.
