    That is hardly true of all contracts - maybe not even most. Certainly some, such as the TOS you see on websites, or with bank accounts, or insurance, or other contracts of adhesion. But even with negotiated contracts, you want to make sure you cover everything possible, because the whole point of reducing it to writing is to solve all possible problems in advance.

    You know it’s odd, but I’ve never heard of anyone reading a “no parking” sign and making the mistake of thinking that there will never be any parking ever allowed anywhere on earth.

    I don’t recall a single incident of someone seeing a Nike “Just do it” slogan and getting upset because the slogan is telling people to do ALL THINGS, including dangerous, violent and illegal things.

    I can’t think of even one time that someone heard “skiing is fun” or “pizza is tasty” and got genuinely confused - honestly thinking that it meant that ONLY skiing is fun. Nothing else. Only pizza is tasty. No other food is. All other sports and food are inferior and should be banned.

    But show people a “black lives matter” t-shirt.....

    Somebody should remind the law professor there are no billable hours here.
    To the contrary - I regard it as a measured, intelligent, and carefully-worded response to an ill-judged criticism, and one which took the opportunity to inform the students concerned.

    Perhaps you do not share the regard and expertise in respect of the English language which this Master of Laws obviously enjoys - that is your prerogative; but it has no bearing upon the value of her response.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey
