Rick Fielding, for a guy who claims not to really care and not have any computer tracking skills, you seem to have gone to some length to track this person down online. Looks like light stalking to me. Maybe I'm the one being paranoid now, but as a female poster, the information you are giving out about this person is troubling to me. How many other guests and members are being tracked by Max, Joe, and or the Mudcat clones?

Problem I'm having with both your & katlaughing's response is, where did you come up with this person's name in the first place? It had to come from somewhere, and neither of you said where or how you got the person's name from, so what are we to think? That tells me someone here is Mudcat is responsible for putting this person, who appears only once in the archives, on a list of posters "to be watched". Well, how do regular folks like Rick Fielding get this information, and is the passing around of information about posters to this website routinely given out when they become "a problem"?

Something just doesn't seem right to me about this whole Janet Ryan thing. Now Ralphie too mentions the name. Where is everyone here getting the information, and are the "right" members privvy to this sort of private information about people posting here?

Why do a few members and clones here have it in for this person anyway? Has this person been sanctioned elsewhere on the internet (perhaps in the other group Rick mentioned)? Has this person been personally identified by Mudcat management, their ISP contacted, etc. for doing something seriously destructive here?

Or is this, as I fear, just some negative "smoke the guest out of the hole" thing here at Mudcat? Whatever it is, it is getting VERRY CREEPY if these are the lengths people around here are going to, just to out the identity of a poster to apparently wishes to remain anonymous. Considering that this forum does allow anyone who posts here to remain anonymous, these attempts to "expose" someone's identity seems very wrong to me. It also makes me wonder what other information about posters is being swapped through Mudcat backchannels.
