I’m not sure if the Webmasters Stack Exchange provides authorship markup/link relations explicitly, or if this is an error by Google’s algorithms? It probably (I did not check) has to do with the protection. If that’s the case, maybe we could change it in a way so that Google doesn’t mistakenly thinks the "protector" is the author?
