So we should stop pretending it was a little, harmless message. Mr.Inman is not that powerful but he used media and timing to make sure that the e-mail had the deisred effect. And it did .

Inman used the media? It appears to be the French federation who made a media issue out of what would otherwise just have been a "we should pay more attention to transitions" e-mail within the judging community.

Thanks to Vagabond's compilation, you can see some judges were clearly blind or decided to be blind in giving Plushenko transition marks in the high 8s at the Olympics despite the Inman incident and Plushenko's own little admission. I am guessing the same judges gave Patrick Chan 12s.

Using those 8.75's as a baseline, 12's for Chan's Transitions would be sensible, cautious, conservative marks. :)
