What I have called for is "mutual" transparency. As I have said repeatedly,
when *everyone* has revealed their secrets, I will be happy to reveal mine.
However, my name is not a secret. Due to the volume of traffic on this list
I have subscribed to it by my hotmail account. As it happens I subscribed
to hotmail using my nickname "Zero." If it makes you sleep better at night,
my birth name is "Michael."
