I disagree. We can assume whatever we want. When a poster has admitted there was a TOS violation I can't see how anyone can not assume "guilt". But what's important is how we reply ... and that needs to be in the spirit of helping a fellow webmaster. The issue of guilty, innocent or in-between needs to really be set aside. It's a Google matter and not for us to take a position on that, we need to respond in the spirit of community.
Added: Thanks for your input ASA :)
