I was referring to your post, in which a fairly solid argument was
made for there being no guilt. Maybe you don't have any specific
authority, but until someone actually acts in a moderatorial role,
solid arguments are plenty authoritative enough for most of us.
Particularly for the newsgroup people, where there is no central
authority at all.
