> I think there are very bad consequences to making a general rule. If Dr. Bob is trying to solve a situation that frequently pops up, that applies to many posters, and that he has long wanted to address, that's fine.

I really think it is meant to clarify the pressure/harassment concept in the civility guidelines.

We really need Bob to make more meaningful and contextual comments about the applicability of any new rule. We're arguing about implications that he could have entirely precluded by more explicit descriptions of his intent.

Way back when, I got into it with a guy named maxx or something. He repeatedly suggested there were scientific references for a particular claim, and I asked him to provide them. He'd say they're all over the place. I'd say show me one. It was in the form of a dialogue. I got PBC'd for harassment (I also go blocked in the ensuing discussion, but after I checked the archives, I can see I started with a PBC with respect to the repeated questioning). I don't think I did anything wrong then, and I don't now.

The way Bob has worded his suggested new rule, I still don't see if I'm allowed to interact that way in a dialogue or not. I only renewed my request for information because he renewed his assertion there was ample information available. I did exceed three total requests, but I did not ever make three consecutive requests without any topical reply from the other party. I wanted to consider his evidence, not just his conclusions about the evidence. Those are very different things.
