"Vestara is a Sith. Mara Jade was a Sith when Luke met her." Unless somebody's established a meeting previous to any in Zahn's written works, Mara Jade wasn't a Sith when Luke met her. She was a trained Force user who had been (or was depending on how you count "meeting") working for the Emperor, but it was first explicitly noted that the Emperor showed no interest in her becoming a Sith or using the Dark Side, and demonstrated she didn't subscribe to Sith philosophy. Later works expanded on that to demonstrate that the Emperor specifically gave her work which was at least in its direct consequences fairly ethical, and that Vader never saw the Emperor's Hands as actual competition in the Sith way. (All of which made the transition to Jedi much simpler.)

  • Alice's Adventure in Wonderland:
    'Seven years and six months!' Humpty Dumpty repeated thoughtfully. 'An uncomfortable sort of age. Now if you'd asked my advice, I'd have said "Leave off at seven" — but it's too late now'.
    'I never ask advice about growing,' Alice said indignantly.
    'Too proud?' the other inquired.
    Alice felt even more indignant at this suggestion. 'I mean,' she said, 'that one can't help growing older.'
    ' One can't, perhaps,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'but two can. With proper assistance, you might have left off at seven.'

Yes? And? There's no indication of what was being gotten past the radar here

It now says it's "murder and suicide" which is ... wow. And all this time I thought it simply meant that Humpty thought people could freeze their ageing if they had help.

Now I'm wondering what arguing with words about what they mean is actually about. It can't possibly just be nonsense!
