Proposal: A Friend of my Friend is not an Enemy

Reaches quorum 8-2 and is enacted. -coppro

Add a new subrule to the rule “Respect and Grievance”.  Call it “Consonance” and give it the following text:

A Musician cannot have a Grievance against someone they Respect.  If a Musician Respects another Musician, they cannot have a Grievance against anyone that Musician Respects.  If any Musician’s Respect or Grievance changes in a way that violates one of these constraints, they cease to have a Grievance.

Notably absent: keeping the Musician you Respect from having a Grievance against you.

for Although I’m dubious about “If any Musician’s Respect or Grievance changes in a way that violates one of these constraints, they cease to have a Grievance.”

That’s there because otherwise it would be illegal for the Musician you Respect to change their Respect to your Grievance.

Does that mean “If a Musician respects another Musician, they cannot have a Grievance… Well, they can, but if they do, they lose their Grievance.”?
If it doesn’t, then I don’t understand it. If it does, I don’t think it works.

Suppose:
A Respects B and holds Grief against C.
B Respects X and holds Grief against Y.
B changes their Respect to C, which violates one of the constraints, and so B ceases to have a Grievance against Y, and we end up with:
A Respects B and holds Grief against C.
B Respects C and has no Grievance.
Which is still illegal.

against I think Cpt_Koen is right in his interpretation.
