Quite how you come to that conclusion, I don't know.  If you're refused
permission, then that's the *opposite* from being legitimate to try to
do so.  Not only did you originally discover that it was blocked, you're
being outright told that it's not allowed.

In some places, flouting such rules is grounds for dismissal, perhaps on
the first and only instance you get caught.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
