What are you talking about [Linked Image]

The only minor thing I see is that it could use a bushing going through the drywall

Wait, I think you are purposely hiding the violation by not showing all of the picture.

Shame on you trying to trick us like that!!

Sheeesh, some inspectors are so picky [Linked Image]

It is. It's a 1000+ sq. ft. box with its own access door and inspection windows. [Linked Image]

No problem with box fill there! [Linked Image]

Looks like there are two neutrals in a single hole on the bottom block...

They are white, but considering their surroundings I'd be reluctant to think that they're neutrals [Linked Image]
