You may or may not be right, but have you looked for problems or just 
assumed that because nobody has brought any to your attention, they 
don't exist?

"I have seen nothing" != "there is nothing to see".

Sorry Ned, I don't follow you here. It sounds like you're saying that 
you're fine with spam or abusive content being hosted in our name, so

ourselves.
