Your post is a breath of fresh air.

Everything you're saying is the the true reality and evolution of things. And if you asked enough school playground lawyers "can I?", they would be duty-bound to tell you "no". Yet as you have discovered, the reality (ie.: does anyone really care?) is often different. Presuming .... of course .... that you're not being a sore thumb or nuisance in some way.
