I was just observing that I'd far rather my grants were reviewed by someone who had just received a new grant (or fundable score) than someone who had been denied a few times recently.
It strikes me that this may not be universal logic.
Is the disgruntled-applicant reviewer going to be sympathetic? Or will he do unto you as he has been done to?
Will the recently-awarded reviewer be in a generous mood? Or will she pull up the ladder?
