I just read this lady's profile.
The following sentence has drawn my attention:
I'm not above occasionally bending or breaking a grammar rule for good cause. But I do believe clear, persuasive communication requires sensible, well-respected language conventions.
What does "above" mean in this context? I've rarely seen such usage before, nor have I been able to find anything online. My best guess is it might mean "against". Or could it mean "free from"?
EDIT: so "not above" means "no better than"?
