That's pretty much my attitude, though I don't think I could have put it in words so well as Shar did. I thought the point was to voice our objections here, allow Bob to offer some further explanation of his decision, but we still have to live with his decisions.
I know there's some kind of principle from corporate culture that it's harmful to the group to keep advocating for a different outcome after a decision has been made. I agree with that principle, though I know it's hard to do, and I'm not sure I do it so well myself. At some point, for the sake of the group's functioning, you just have to find a way to live with the outcome.
I generally find Bob's explanations here to be understandable and helpful, even when I know I wouldn't have taken the same action myself. I also don't see him as totally deaf to our input like many do. We're all different.
