>Factoid to Avoid Paranoia

>

Just looked up "ex-officio" after an odd comment today… Seems it means: "from the office"By virtue of office or position; "by right of office". Often used when someone holds one position by virtue of holding another. A common misconception is that ex officio members of a committee/congress may not vote, but this is not guaranteed by that title.
 
Good to know that I found the correct meaning before beginning paranoid questioning after the fact.
