I mean I think I have now accurately explained my position.
Just in case it gets lost back there....
"I still want to know, what does this mean? Responsibility with no responsibility legally is what?
I mean if it was my responsibility to clean up the dogs mess, but I never did and someone else did it for me and I was punished, I am obviously responsible. Now lets remove the punishment, this also removes any real responsibility as if I do it or not is now irrelevant.
Can someone explain how I would still be responsible?"
