It's not bad enough that Mr. Postel throws out an RFC process mid stream 
and assumes god mode. Now you are pulling authority out of the air 
aswell? Guys if you want your god mode, play by the rules that you set

very thin and you're only going to find more business consumers of the 
net legally dragging you across the carpet for it.
