@sleepingsleeping So it’s not that I don’t agree that a 10 is unwarranted based on those rules (although I can’t recall an error, I haven’t watched it since the Olympics), it is a bit strange to have a new member show up solely to post that information.
As your post said, that is a guideline. Guidelines can be broken if appropriate. I think it was completely warranted in the case of Hanyu’s Olympic performance - it was truly a stunning skate the likes of which we rarely see.
If we say "Guidelines can be broken if appropriate." We will not be able to condemn Chinese judges. Because she did not violate any rules and just judged under the given discretionary discretion.
"4 Lz fall" "OK, I like the height, I will give + 5 to his jump." Once the judge starts to do this, it is no longer a competition.
This Chinese judge has entered as a judge in most competitions of jin in the 2017-2018 season and has repeatedly made the same judgment as the Olympic Games.
Finlandia Trophy Espoo 2017
ISU GP Audi Cup of China 2017
ISU GP 2017 Bridgestone Skate America
ISU Four Continents Championships 2018
Chinese judges were pointed out the issue of national bias before the Olympic Games.

Nevertheless, she did such a judge.

The situation will be worse if the range of GOE is expanded. If you do not make rules so that judges must obey it, the meaning of competition will be lost. For example, Fall should be "must-5".
