Perhaps it is not in so literal way. Back in a previous post we read:


at  www.bruceclay.com/blog/archives/2007/07/

Google's Niniane Wang co-created a site to talk women off the ledge when they’re getting ready to call that guy they totally shouldn’t call because said guy is a jerk and they’re better of without him, his baggage and his stupid haircut. You go, girl!
-------------------

And the link goes to...


Don't Call Him, Girl!
We're here to help you resist making that phone call...
Reasons not to call him.
If he's not going to appreciate you, why should you call him? Respect yourself!
He's acting like a jerk. You are a beautiful lily flower that deserves only the best.

-------------------------------

 

 

  So, in this case I guess the author is talking about "persuasion", in other words is trying to persuade a girl in love not calling in a hasty decision.   Advising her to do something otherwise.

  So, the pattern could apply to other situations as well (when it comes to an important decision).

   But, context is all.  So, why not being "peitoril"?

   Depends on context.

   See you again, PP.
