Then remove the reference of my employer, please.  I was speaking as a http
project member on my personal time.  In fact, remove my name, now that you
understand that the ASF doesn't have a legal issue with your site; it's your
issue of choosing to protect yourself or not from third parties.  Not from me,
and not from the ASF.

The legal-stuff I offered is to highlight the line which you enjoy relative
safety as a distributor of open source.  If something happened, you would
want to refer any complaining company/individual back at the "official
release" (e.g., the ASF).  The ASF is a big foundation, with the resources
to address any complaint and remedy or dispute it.

But if it isn't something that the ASF released, you are at a loss to explain
some arbitrary infringement.  I wrote you both last year, and this, to help
encourage you to respect that line for your own protection and benefit.
