Anders, *you have* a good reputation, and I am honored to be
associated with you. I dont recall ever seeing an unkind word from
you or even a micoflame, even against those who richly deserve
it. {8-] However there are posters to this list that I hope I am
never associated with, (and they surely feel likewise about me)
and I have no control over what they post.

There are many cases where we quote a previous post then
refute that stated viewpoint. Any debate opponent doing a
keyword search would get hits with someone else's quote with
our name on it. If they wanted, they could delete out our
comment and quote someone elses words under our name.

I dont know how to deal with deniability of archived posts
other than to request a complete version of any quoted post
and a request to confirm my authorship. spike
