How can you be a "black and white letter of the law guy" in some instances but not in others? Apparantly you and AR15 use some disrection to decide when to be "letter of the law". Which sounds to me like some rules you think are "important" and some are not so important. How do you decide? And then, why is your judgement more valid than someone elses?

Personally, I'm very concerned with net height because I know that even one millimeter can mean the difference between the ball hitting the tape and falling over the net or not falling over the net. Some people say I'm wrong to be obsessed with measuring the net height, but I don't think so. I understand how important it can be and I also know the rule.
You don't understand. The reason a cop cannot give you a speed ticket for small amount of speeding (say 5km over) is because of potential equipment error. The driver can appeal in court and the ticket will get throw away. It is just a waste of everyone's time and money. It is much more productive/profitable to nail the big offender. Those reasons has nothing to do with tennis.

That's why it is an apple orange comparison and probably that's why AR15 think your logic is strange.
