I took Sam's comment, "I agree with the suggestion you close your  
email with", as referring to "Hope that helps;  feel free to ignore me  
if not...", particularly in light of the generally negative light it  
casts on things. Which would not be a very nice thing to say. Maybe  
that's not what he meant, or maybe he said it in haste, which is why  
my message was on www-archive and not public-html or public-html-wg- 

Sam is indeed allowed to have and express an opinion as long as it  
does not interfere with impartially managing the work of the group.
