"You will cease and desist from any communication with Clio whatsoever. If you choose to respond the same question as her, or write in the same article, you will do so without any reference, no matter how oblique to her or her answer. Indeed any reference to her here, or on Wikiversity, will result in a block."

Shakespeare's Portia, to Shylock, in The Merchant of Venice:

"Tarry a little; there is something else. This bond doth give thee here no jot of blood; The words expressly are "a pound of flesh." But in the cutting it, if thou dost shed One drop of Christian blood, thy lands and goods Are by the laws of Venice confiscate Unto the laws of Venice."


I indeed made reference to Clio in asking her a question.

May the Lord have mercy upon my soul.
