particular situations, and similar situations ought to be approached
And how, exactly, is what Kamryn did "similar" to anything that was
addressed in the past rulings? She was providing a relevant
reference to an article, not engaging in harrassment or attacks.
The crucial point is that attempts to take the rulings
from the Mongo
case and turn them into *general* rules have not been constructive.
The ways in which some people have chosen to extrapolate from the
Mongo case have failed to take into account the nuances of the
...including, in my opinion, what Bauder did in the course of
"clarifying" the ruling.
