I guess my response to that is "Good for you," and not in a sarcastic way. At least in my region of the Greater Chicago Area, it sounds like there's been an overall failure to follow the AH (this is not the only instance though in which proper USFA rules were disregarded in running local events, granted). I realize it may have sounded like I was arguing against you saying that events seeded based on the NRPS exist, but it's just when someone has 6+ years of experience around the fencing in, organizing, and running of tournaments, and someone tells them a pretty major rule they've never heard of, they're bound to be suspicious and in disbelief. That's how I am. Imagine if someone after 6 years was told that DEs were seeded based on win% and not just on indicator after having always believed the latter - it'd be a bit of a shock and not sound real. As a by the way though to teacup, local, divisional, and regional veteran tournaments seed only by classification and year, not by national points, so you would've been in error if you meant what you said about seeding "every tournament, youth to senior to veteran" using NRPS.
