Please explain what clarification you need. Your request was ambiguous, and I'm not sure what help you need. The request, as written, was clear according to statutes and I am quite happy to cite case law if necessary. I would like to help you process the request as efficiently as possible, but if you don't help me to help you, I would have no choice but to force you to proceed (through a lawsuit, if necessary) and process the request as you are required to do by statute and case law.

Yes this is a late response. Reopen the request. If you want to do all the formality bullshit, we can but honestly it's a waste of everyone's time and it's not a game you win in the long run. Ever. You generally can't even acknowledge requests in the time period the law allows you to complete them. Need I remind you of the WikiLeaks FOIA (which I'm still expecting documents from, BTW...)?
