When acting as a service admin, it's official, no really.

I'm sorry, but Bastian's statement was inherently official.
He was a Salsa Admin, saying something that could only be said in his
official role.
When I took it as an official statement and acted on it, he thanked me
rather than correcting me that it was only his personal opinion.

It's reasonable for the project to take it that way; many people did.

It was on Bastian to communicate appropriately within the team.  If that
didn't happen, that's an internal team matter.
