I'd suggest you read about adjacency effect (aka border effect) and
Sabatier effect before proving that you are confused between these and
somewhat abused term Mackie line... Obviously adjacency effect we are
discussing here has nothing to do with Sabatier effect.

This is another piece of evidence that you are confused between
adjacency effect of development and reexposure or Sabatier effect.

thereby proving that your previous statement about adjacency effect
and hydroquinone is indeed irrelevant.

I suggest to check what you say based on your own criticisms before
presenting here...
