Unless I've overlooked something, it's impossible for someone to join the Cafe in full force without validation by an administrator, and Beev is still on sabbatical. It is possible for someone not validated to PM members. I received such a PM a while back from someone calling himself "Henry J. Fate," who would very much like to enter our ranks but can't. So I've volunteered to post for him, under my name but clearly giving him credit. He's able to read what the rest of us post, so feel free to reply to anything he says.
