Jim, any chance you can out MD4BUSH without waiting for a subpoena? Those of us in Maryland would love to see the state Democratic Party's dirty tricks exposed.
I've got the hunch that JR is sitting on what will be the biggest scandal of the 2006 election. Timing is everything.
The problem is, if he did, then he'd be on shaky ground in terms of protecting the IDs of all other FReepers. Whereas, with a subpoena, he can in the future, fight any claims that a precedent was set, in instances where the press or even governments try to find FReepers IDs without subpoenas. It's best to err extremely on the side of privacy.
