My reasons for dissociation from your policies were posted elsewhere,
and (once again) I decline to discuss them here.  (They were similar to
your VP's when he resigned on you this morning, and to those of the
other several volunteers who've walked out on you.)

"Tom Pilot" or "David", or whatever he is, has actually substantive 
(if brief) history of involvement with Internet technology.

Well, at minimum, we would seem to have here David posing as "Tom Pilot"
or Tom Pilot posing as "David", right?  ;->

However, I think the phenomenon of convienent political support popping
up from suddenly appearing brand-new posters using free webmail accounts
can be parsed by any attentive reader, and I merely call the matter to
their attention.
