But, when you voted, absent the warning, you could not have realized you would be identified. If you voted in error, why did you wait so long (2/4) to post a correction? Why not immediately? But, you are not the topic of this thread, so I'll leave it at that.
Edit: IBM, after further consideration, I may have first read this thread before logging on. If so, the warning would not have been visible to me. If I have unjustly accused you of having ulterior motives, please accept my sincere apology.
