Suppose you heard someone say
"Smoking in bed is bad, because it will set off the fire alarm."
This seems to miss the point
You might expect them to say next
"That's why I hang a sheet over the bed when I smoke."

Whether or not the alarm goes off!

No action is bad because it provokes a strict alarm
No action is good because it does not provoke a strict alarm
