@Richard I know that no public reports were released previously. But if it starts to be a habit, it will help elevate the transparency of the process.
Concerning the grid the Judges real names can be anonymized to be Judge 1, Judge 2 and so on. As for the "second guessing" issue, I think it can appear in many forms whether the report was published or not. As for your example, isn't it the case for all contenders (especially if they are strong ones) in any selection mechanism (be it bidding, elections or any other form) ? And Richard thank you for all your efforts as a judge and taking the effort to reply on our concerns in this thread. Holding such responsibilities is a huge burden and makes the person vulnerable to critics, whether they are deserved or not. @Nathan Totally agree! This would be a great start.
