Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In a case of a gezera or any other issur that might not apply to a particular person (for whatever reason) we often still say it does because of a "lo plog". In order that we shouldn't make differences and exceptions in a gezera that was made or in a case of a particular issur.

What is an example of a "lo plog" from Shas?

What is an example of a case where we should apply the rule of a "lo plog" however we don't?

(I have not provided any examples in my question because that's exactly what I'm looking for a "classic" example that is found in Shas. As well as an example where we find that really we should say "lo plog" but we don't.)

I believe the phrase you are looking for is "לא פלוג רבנן", or "lo palug rabanan" - our rabbis do not differentiate. Yad Malachi כללי הש"ס 'ל' כלל שנז considers Eruvin 65b to be a classic example. –  WAF Feb 27 '13 at 23:38
    
@WAF why not make this an answer? –  Yehoshua Feb 28 '13 at 6:07
    
I didn't think it had enough substance to it, but here I go. . . –  WAF Mar 1 '13 at 1:08
    
@WAF you're right, I made that commment pretty quick after seeing yours... Any others? –  Yehoshua Mar 1 '13 at 6:03

See Tosfos (hacha)in shabbas 45b about using an animal for a baby.

That case is a lo plug.It is not clear what type of lo plug you want? –  sam Mar 4 '13 at 3:29
