Dave, Casey and Alan,

I for one would very much appreciate you publishing the name, call,
address, e-mail of the person who would treat others is this
manner. You have no obligation to spare this person from any
embarrassment for their chosen actions. There is a high level of
trust between members here that we need to preserve. Exposing this
pirate would be doing all of us a favor and serve as a reminder to
others contemplating similar mistreatment.
