How can readers distinguish between prejudicial and non-prejudicial use of rhetorical devices?

This question has been asked and answered here several times in the last few weeks.

Rhetorical devices are designed to evoke certain emotions from the readers. That fact in itself makes rhetorical devices prejudicial. In other words, authors who use rhetorical devices do so to arouse emotions. They want the reader to prejudge a situation.

If you know of any non-prejudicial use of a rhetorical device, please post it -- and we'll discuss it.
