If your friend follows the self rate guidelines and/or her friends are sure she should play 4.0, then she should. To do otherwise would be dishonest and unfair to her opponents.
Yeah i'm not talking about being dishonest, I'm talking about poeple who genuinely arent sure if they are one or the other and the headaches of trying to get lowered to your correct level vs the ease of playing up to your correct level if you do end up being wrong with your self rate.
