It would be if Horner were Weaver's boss or otherwise had power over her (say, 
the power to ruin her career or give her a job she doesn't deserve). 
Fortunately, that's not the case. To return to the metaphor, Weaver isn't in 
Horner's pool.

Incidentally, I very strongly disagree with the idea that we shouldn't discuss 
what people do when those people happen to be "our peers, colleagues and 
friends". If there is to be a double standard, it should go in the other 
direction: "friends don't let friends...".
