This is now getting stupid, and while a minor stalking fixation with
Mr. Blosser might have some merits for the truly vexed FoRKer, this
behavior is really lame. At least if your'e going to post the bits,
don't be a jackass and hide about it eh?
I'm all up for anonymity and privacy protections, but don't you think
its just a mite bit hypocritical (assinine, juvenille, pick a word),
to go broadcast this guy's alleged history while hiding behind an
anonymizer? ITs not like the guy -really- did anything all that
spectacular. So he posted FoRK to a spambot. He was rebuked, his
employer notified and probably won't be smart enough to post to FoRK
again. Do we need this?

I need a witty quote.
