True. In fact the thread that was locked in GM really evolved into a discussion about whether or not telling people that drinking themselves into a drunken stupor is probably not the best way to stay safe, is a good thing or not.
The Utopians in that thread believe telling a person to take common sense precautions is attacking and blaming the victim.

We all want justice for everybody else and mercy for ourselves.
