>I wanted to let you know that Brian Williams and I
>supported each other in the belief that it was an
>imposter, a "troll" as some say, writing from an email
>address outside the list. The person who supposedly
>wrote the nasty one wrote to me later, offered support
>and encouraged me to come back to the list. While this
>is not dead proof, in this person's case I believe it
>is enough--s/he is always straightforward, to the
>point, and generally logical. Only sniped at me once,
>but this was the hole the impersonator must have been
>looking for.
>I have, at Brian's prompting, told the person who was
>impersonated and offered my regrets as well as my
>reasons for silence. I asked the person not to release
>this information because I have no clue if s/he would
>be treated badly over it or not. I am very concerned,
>in light of the treatment some people got for hosting
>withing themselves any spirituality. I am sure you can
>understand this.
>I hope this has not caused any horrors on the list. I
>don't want to make any difficulties for people who are
>above board, even if they are crabby at times. I
>rather hope that a new unity in the group can be found
>from it, and if anyone finds out who was impersonated
>that s/he will be supported and will find strength in
>the spirit of fellow extropians--it seems that's how
>it was meant to be. Please renew any solidarity that
>was lost, and perhaps include me in it when I return
>to the list.
>Thank you for all your support. Please feel free to
>pass this on to the rest of the list, and send my best
