You are making a lot of assumptions. And I suspect that some of them are unwarranted. JMO, of course.

Of the people who have DB pensions, they tend to be old.

Or public employees.

Currently.

It's a bit old, but it's not like DB pensions have picked up since 2005.

Most of the readers of this thread probably unaccustomed to the creation of lesson plans. Here is an example for the ASS program of the Chicago Actuarial Association's nursery school ... Day 1 ... Learning Objective: Five-finger salute ... Day 2 ... Learning Objective: place thumbs in ears, wiggle fingers and stick out your tongue ...

yes, but does this mean that most older employees have pensions? i'm a near 60 yo employee, and i know few if any non-gummit employees in my age group covered by a pension plan. sure, anecdote = anecdote + 1 ...

I'll let PP explain what she means.

What I mean is that most of the people (in the U.S.) with DB pensions are old. No, that's not the same thing.

Default Question to OP Mr Sharpe

Prior to the complaint against you filed by TGS, had you filed a complaint against TGS?

Conflicts of interest abound.

Taking the amended complaint at face value, surely it is not hard for an actuary to recuse themselves from a panel where the perception of a conflict of interest exists because that is the right thing to do in such cases involving disciplinary matters and reputations.
