Response from office worker after manager has explained a simple procedure for the 8th time, the last time using graphic displays out of desperation because said worker must be mentally incapacitated to have not understood what was required on the first try.
(upon 8th explanation of simple procedure)
Anita (employee): Thanks for clarifying
Michelle (boss) : Oy. The dreaded "thank you for clarifying," defined as explaining something for the 100th time when you should have understood it the first time. How do you even get yourself dressed in the morning? (and then out loud I said: You're welcome. )

'clarifying proposal' or 'defining resolution' or 'defining proposal' is a summary that is also used to reveal an underlying problem to an obfuscating author such as a conman without giving away awareness (by the victim) of the conman's scam.
I am an agent with a buyer who wishes to buy your property but we wish to carry out due diligence first so we offer a deposit whilst conveyancers are engaged. The con is that the agent takes a commission from the conveyancer then the purchase falls through. The seller does not wish to reveal their suspicion of the con so offers a 'clarifying proposal' being: instead of a deposit let the buyer pay all the seller's conveyancer fees.

The term 'to clarify' refers to the act of completely walking back something you recently stated, and claiming (falsely) that you meant the exact opposite.
"Everyone is lying about covid-19. The Media, Democrats, our Doctors, not all but most. To clarify, covid-19 is real, my son has it, and I feel terrible for everyone who has died."
