I think BD are right. The SM can not say to the PO not attending Daily. If the Development team decided Peter could join because the Development team are the owner of daily

I think AD are correct. In A, the main concern is the behavior of the PO, by congratulate some specific dev team members, so it can affect the whole team mood and create tension. The PO must't influence the Dev team, as it's an autonom entity. About D, no question on this, it's correct

I concern about AD or BD too. I also did research on the Scrum Guide, and get what is defined The Guide says: "The Scrum Master enforces the rule that only Development Team members participate in the Daily Scrum." So SM can say stop attending to PO. AD is the right in scope of Scrum Guide. But, I think PO can join with the observation view.
