Several months ago, yea - I am going way back in my archives, Gary Illyes of Google joked on Twitter that his clearance and controls within Google is a bit superior to those of the Google manual action evaluators.

He said "I have way better things in my toolbelt than the evaluators."

The context here is I joked that Gary should "press the big red button" to penalize a site or group of sites and Pedro Dias said "he can't. He's not cleared for that." Pedro is a former Googler. In which, Gary responded with that line.

Truth is, I personally would love to know what access Gary has versus John versus other Googlers on different teams.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
