Actually, that's very much important compared to someone with a "sound mind" who adopts similar behavior. It means they've fallen into a hole, either through vulnerability or carelessness, and they could genuinely be helped out of it with the right amount of effort. Someone who's not vulnerable though? Well, they still need help out of the hole, but chances are, they probably dug it, so getting them out would be a lot harder.
Keying off of the same notion, I noticed you didn’t share this post, goobster. I don’t know if that equates to a ‘didn’t read,’ so I copying this here for posterity.
Also: writing my take up b/w classes. Will post in my comment so as not to co-opt this chain.
