Has there been some change in the rules that wasn't mentioned?

Which rule do you think they're breaking? Both are badly written, sure, but don't seem to actually break any of the rules to me.

Honest Mistake: Repeals should address the contents of the resolution it's targeting, and not just state the reverse of the arguments given in the resolution. Embellishment, exaggeration, deceptive/weaselly-words do not constitute an 'honest mistake'. An 'honest mistake' is factual inaccuracies, misrepresentation, or content that doesn't address the resolution.

They make policy arguments that are more than just a negation. They're shitty policy arguments, but not illegal.

That said, there is a Proposal Basics issue with both.
