|That's kind of where I have had a problem with the rule, even though I
think the numerous arguments that it was a valid rule have all been excellent and
convincing. I am so tempted now to agree that it is a valid rule...but! <cut>|
I think we are all agreed that, as a rule, it's a poor one. Valid, but poor. Is there a need to argue over why it's a poor rule?
If we're agreed that it is a poor rule, then rather than trying to decide whether it is valid according to the One True Rules (which is at best academic), maybe we should be trying to find an interpretation of the rules that makes it invalid. Or, the problem with the rules as written which means it is valid when it should not be.
