But you have given us no basis for a judgement. I ask again: What is the difference between these two rules? Both of them seem to me to be based purely upon what the instructor in question liked or did not like in his or her own education. How are we to understand that one of them is "ethical" while the other is not? Or are you simply evading the question?
