Hey, then meet your own standard. John and myself and others have
created the standard, we disclose our full names, our geographic
location is relatively easy to find (I'll give you mine if you ask for
it, if you haven't figured out already I live in NH), and I'm not afraid
to meet with anyone in person. Stop talking the talk and walk the walk,
meet the standard we set. WHAT is your full name? In the words of the
poet, s*** or get off the pot.
