The PDGA rule book is inconsistent with the language and uses "shall" where "may" can also be applied.

My post was related to our legal system. The PDGA is free to act foolishly when it wants.

Worst one I ever heard of was the claim that a disc, having been thrown OB, must be taken out of play and not used the rest of the tournament.

I've heard that one a few times. Even heard it taken a step farther and say that you're not allowed to even carry it in the bag and you have to leave it where it lies.

That pretty much commands you to do it. If it's good enough for the almighty, it's good enough for me.
How's that worked so far?

Sort of pretending all OB is a lake, I guess. Maybe it's supposed to make the OB seem more Natural?

That sounds like something that would be really fun to do one day in a league.
