and that's the sole advantage, you as a rep of evolt can stop what 
you say... but others may take your lead and continue a rant or a 
bashing... you need to at least recognize that possibility...

as for misinterpreting, it was based on your statements that you 
say things there that do want to hide, and because you said you 
use it often, and most of us don't, therefore you don't want others 
to impose on this thing you use, not that everyone uses... so, 
yeah, there was ownership implied...

i know it's hard *not* to feel ownership of a place, public or not, in 
which you feel comfortable, and i'm not lambasting you for that...

that makes a lot of your arguments less persuasive, then...  now 
you're just another user/member in an evolt channel, which means 
your opinions (and statements) can be misconstrued as evolt.org 
party line... and when negative things are said, those sentiments 
are applied to evolt.org as the collective opinion...

you just need to recognize that...
