For the last 65 years.  My reading comprehension has been pretty  
good for 60.

Any ambiguity would be in the eyes of the beholder.

That's precisely the point I made.

I 'politely suggested', perhaps ambiguously, that someone was  
making assumptions.

I'll bet they were...

I doubt if I ever voted to moderate *this* USENET newsgroup.  
I've been reading it since 1984 or so, and have never felt the  
need to use anything other than a real email address when doing  
so.  If I ever voted for a moderated a2 group (if you've taken  
the time to find out if I did, perhaps you could take the time to  
give me some context?), it was probably to get the whiners out of  
this one.  The pompous ones are no problem...
