Eh... I'm of two minds about this.
There's the technically correct Stack Exchange thing to do, and then there's the deep down right thing to do. Probably something that everyone has to check their own personal moral compass on, but I tend to think that's a good thing sometimes.
Interpersonal skills aren't as cut and dry as most subjects. One of the really interesting things about the topic, but also one of the things that make the topic difficult in this format.
Probably a hertical opinion, but perhaps in some cases, some things should be weighed a little differently. Rather than "does this content meet the strict rules of SE?" it may be worth taking a little more time to think about whether this content is likely to be useful to the OP and future readers.
I know that the SE model hates gray areas. We'll preform some interesting mental gymnastics in order to try to avoid them or make rules and edit things to try to avoid the appearance of them, but... if we're really honest they're always going to be there.
And... As much as I hate to admit it, we need some structure. Too much gray area and we begin to allow people to post errant nonsense that isn't likely to help anyone.
I would like to suggest that, on the hopefully rare occasion, we would be a little more willing to accept a little gray here and there, when it looks like adhering to the cut and dry rules deprives the site, and the community, of honestly helpful content.
When the choice comes down to doing the right thing, vs following the rules, have a little courage and do the right thing.
