I agree wholeheartedly Excellency.

If these types of requests start to come about more and more
frequently, I'd say "keep it down", and I also agree with people
asking for them to not be posted. It's when claims are made that we're
putting Corporate at risk by these actions, I get suspicious. The
posted may truly believe that it is the case, but my common sense says
that the SCA would not be put at any risk.
