A +1 for you, as well.

I find this specific scenario difficult to evaluate. If the table-top counter, or corkboard in some places, was put on display and offered to visitors/patrons to freely utilize without asking permission, why would I be treated any differently and require permission?

There was no sign indicating that permission must be sought. There was no list defining what could or could not be posted.

If I extend an invitation to come to my house and eat/drink whatever is on my table, should I reprimand an individual who reaches for the wine?
