Here's a dilemma:
Would I cross the line to cyber-bullying if I revealed in public that I know exactly who the author is as well as his more mild mannered alter-egos, even down to his actual ISP (not the proxy servers), and correspondingly his actual name and address?
Well, assuming you have that info, you just have revealed that you know.
But if you are really referring not to your knowledge of the "facts" but to your potential publication here or elsewhere of the "facts", then that raises an interesting proposition.
I think it may be safe to assume that if this person is using things like proxy servers, he (you used the word "his", so Jackie is safe! Oh - unless ...!) is pretty well versed in techno stuff. Would I also be correct in thinking that you derived the info you have on this person by technical means? (I.e., knowing pooter stuff).
Because if you know stuff about him, he may know similar stuff about you, gleaned in the same way(s). Raises the prospect of the release of info neither of you may wish to see released to us mere mortals.
Given Sterling's legal caveats, you'd have to be darn sure of the accuracy of your info, and I suspect would have to have a good reason for disclosing the info you claim to have.
But hey ... If there's a bear garden, where's my ticket?!
