In the original post TA effectively asked for interpretation of rule #3. I deleted that section of the post.
First of all, that was never “sanctioned by one of the moderators” the second issue was (supporting spouse vs patient)
Second of all, I don’t think it’s appropriate to ask the membership about
interpretation of rule #3. It offers the opportunity for a free for all, which thankfully has not happened yet. More important, the moderators need to interpret the rules. We use our best judgement and try to be fair. Sometimes we err. When that is clear, we correct our mistake.
Personally, I try to be flexible. I think it’s important. As someone said, not everything is black and white. But what is clear to me, is that in another thread, which is what started this entire discussion, it was my opinion, that probably not intentionally, , fear was injected into a post as a tool to stop someone from a treatment of their spouse, which had already begun. That cannot be tolerated.
Anyone who has an issue with this, or interpretation of any rule, is welcome to contact me or any of the other moderators to discuss. Please don’t turn this into a debate about
whether rule interpretation should be discussed. It will take away from the 2nd question in the original post, which is worthy of discussion.
