I try to put much care on what I write (and where I write), therefore, if 
don't want a message falls into the public area I clearly say so in my 
reply. By not doing it, whatever the recipient does with my message is up 
to him/her (it was _my fault_ and I have to carry with the consecuences 
of my acts).

> Also, who are you to dictate what the policy should be?

I've never made such statement :-/
