Well, it so happens sir that you are featured prominently in two chapters, so I don’t think they would be up for the project! I will get you a copy when one is available.

What’s most noteworthy about this email is the IP from which it was sent:, which is the same I claimed proved Weiss established his pattern of online deception and sockpuppeting long ago as a poster to several Usenet groups.

It also reinforces my claim that Weiss — contrary to Weiss’s insistence — he writes the anonymous blog Mediacrity.
