I hear you on the "avoid arguing" front --  I quit following PT after Dover for pretty much exactly that reason.

I have been thinking that a position of "I'm sorry,  I really can't help you with that - try these sources."   is probably the best to take.   My hope is that she'll eventually realize I'm really not going to enable her, and she'll quit asking me.

My main concern is manage this without offending her - I like her and her husband well enough, and our kids are friends.

Conversation should be pleasant without scurrility, witty without affectation, free without indecency, learned without conceitedness, novel without falsehood. - Shakespeare (reputedly)
