I understand/understood that completely. I did not intend to suggest that
you said otherwise. I was merely addressing his claim that the behavior
in question was "filibustering".

I agree completely.
To clarify/summarize my position, in order to accept Morfin's defense, it
is necessary to accept that:
(1) that filibustering is acceptable behavior
(2) Morfin's behavior is filibustering.
Rejection of either claim is sufficient to reject the defense. I reject
both claims in entirety. I recommend that the IESG do so as well.
