Yet another case of a contributor to this mailing list making an
unqualified statement that should be qualified.  Please stop doing

Our Sages said a lot of different things, and they said a lot of
contradictory things (sometimes they even contradicted themselves,
even the greatest of them, as I pointed out in a recent posting).
Read Ramban on Deuteronomy 22:17.  He disagrees with Rashi, he says
that the verse means, literally, a bloody sheet, and he gives better
and more authoritative sources than Rashi.
