No, we are not a court, so should avoid relying on things which look like they are a court case waiting to happen. Most of these are just ambiguous phrases or omissions and the clarification from the author is easy.

On the whole, I agree with you about the purpose of the list, but I think your recent phrasing has been horribly difficult to understand and confusing. The reply I described as "grandstanding" included a lot of irrelevant material.

Now can we please let the list get back on topic? Your post would have been much more appropriate for -project, I think.
