It boggles my mind that this needs to be said, even if in jest. Just looking at the subject, I think, "What kind of idiot needs to be told not to commit when drunk? Do they need to be told not to drive when drunk too?" And the article is worse than the subject.

Have you considered the possibility that you have encountered something called a "joke"?

They can be a little tricky, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of them if you try.

Especially tricky before my first cup of coffee in the morning. Just ask my wife! :-)

You're right, it doesn't need to be said. Everyone knows you don't drive or commit when drunk. The problem is that "drunk you" might disagree with "sober you", and want to drive/commit anyway.

That's why you install this cool thingy that doesn't let you commit when drunk. Sadly, it's not as easy with cars and drunk drivers...

I believe that folks are actually starting to look into this. http://www.nissan-global.com/EN/TECHNOLOGY/OVERVIEW/dpcc.htm...
