Right, even then.

Sorry, let me back up. I think what makes this hard is defense sometimes becomes offense. It's always fine to clarify what you meant in a previous post (as long as you're civil), if that's what you mean...
> Sorry - it took a while to find them:
Thanks for taking that time. So we do already have this rule! Sorry about my memory lapse.
I'd like to leave it up to posters whose posts are objected to to invoke this. If there's a third "false alarm", they can do so by letting me know the URLs of the objections.
