191. You are referring to the 'Socratic Method' of instruction...
The teacher answers no questions, but rather responds to questions with further questions to lead the student to find his own answer.

It is a form of instruction that requires the student to analytically solve their own problems, which is what lawyers do --solve problems.

It can be maddening when the student knows the teacher has the answer but will not give it to him. But in time you start to 'think like a lawyer' which is the key. It is more important to know how to find the answer than for someone to just tell you the bit of information you need today.

I think Anon is bringing people along because he realizes that a full disclosure would overwhelm people here, and that would likely expose his/her identity 'inside' the Administration --if he/she is still 'inside' and not now a 'whistleblower.'
