 Use of Precedent in Missionality Arguments?
I'm sure most of us know about the role of precedent when making legal arguments, but I'm wondering (and this may or may not be a stupid question) about how arguments from precedent are viewed on this site with respect to whether or not an article is on-mission. For example, let's say someone wanted to create an article about online dating websites (as in collectively). When the inevitable question of whether or not it's on-mission comes up, the author may cite things such as the PUA material and other woo used by some of those sites as on-mission material. In addition, the author proceeds to cite the existing article "Social networking websites" as precedent for its inclusion on the basis that the topic of and approaches taken by the articles are similar. While the first argument concerning woo and PUA stuff is generally par for the course on this wiki, how would the second argument be viewed? Someone may bring up that the cited article has had potentially unresolved missionality disputes of its own, but how does the RW community view the concept of precedent with respect to missionality in general?
