Where I play, at least on rec day, refs and players are expected to exercise judgement. If a ref tells you you are out you are out. If I tell you you are out you are out. If I ask if you want to surrender there is some doubt.

One time I walked up to a bunker, leaned over, and looked at the kid on the other side. I told him he was out. He asked me why. I explained to him I was a live player and on the other team. He appreciated being informed and decided I was right. This is the type of behavior I expect out of experienced players. You are welcome to bunker me but there is a time and place (against newer and younger players) where it is not appropriate. I should not have to write a rule for it.
