Ahhh! Like you I *love* to answer rhetorical questions. ;-)

Yes, or the police would have to arrest every participant of a boxing, martial arts, ... championship.

Yes, or every M.D. would be arrested. You allow him to cut your body and therefore it's O.K.

Yes. In case of a punchfest (is this correct in english, the german word is "Massenschlägerei") *every* participant is convicted.

Yes. In case the one who confirms the "their own good" is an accredited specialist (psychiatrist, judge [yes there is corporal punishment in many, many legal systems, established and endorsed by majority opinion], ...)

I forgive, no problem ;-)
And, if you have to be personal on a public list, I would prefer Mrs.

Then I hope, I was able to enlighten you. ;-)

btw: Highly offtopic. Therefore I'm out.
