No warning, no nothing.  If he had received a warning, he would have
stopped, obviously.  I honestly don't know if he posted them or not,
there have been a rash of forged posts in our names (this is not one,

yourself without spool access.  I really don't think one should have to
do that, anyway, I think it is the responsibility of the disgruntled
reader to at least send a note to the "offending" party.
