My feeling is to say, "tough". You roll the dice, you take your chances.

I don't read un-id scrolls off-stairs unless (1) @ has found ?Aggravate, ?Teleportation, ?Teleport Level, ?Destruction, ?Summon Monster; ?Summon Undead already; (2) It's an emergency and @ is going to die anyway, so maybe I'll get lucky; or (3) I feel @ is powerful enough and I think I can deal with any potential consequences.

Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
