That's an easy one.

If there was a strict rule set up on these things, a checklist that one
could definitively say yes or no, then there would also be users who would
find ways around it, ways to offend, upset, annoy, provoke, or distress,
that they could claim wasn't strictly "against" the rules. We saw that with
"civil POV warriors".

IAR guarantees that no matter how sneaky their evasion, we can say to
someone "yes you did follow the strict rules. But you're still not following
the spirit of them."
