- not applying his twenty-four inch gauge on clearly displayed mismanagement of his time?
- not using his common gavel do divest himself of clearly displayed vices and superfluities?
- not circumscribing or subduing his clearly overtly displayed and unmanageable desires or passions?
- not being fair, equitable or assuring the playing field was level?
- not being unbiased in his choices and decisions in business, lodge, family and life?
- not being moral in activities inside and outside the lodge?
- not spreading the brotherly love one should expect from a "master"?
