The more I think about it, the more offensive I find the tone of this
thread.

We've taken somebody's business - somebody in our line of work, perhaps
even a TECHWR-L member - accused it of being a scam, publicly listed the
person's name from the whois registry, and suggested that he uses
unlicensed software.

All from a simple sales pitch on a well-designed website.

Who started witch-hunting season without telling me?

Gosh, I guess it's time to dissect ALL your websites. Let's hit every
individual contractor, and harshly criticize their approach to marketing
themselves! Let's accuse anybody who is doing a slicker job of it than we
are of some subterfuge, or flat-out criminal behavior! Let's publish as
much personal information about each other as we can divulge from the
Internet!

This will be fun! And for those of you too young to have experienced
McCarthyism, here's your second chance - now you won't feel like you
missed out.

Wow. A great big "sheesh" for those of you for whom this shoe fits.

I'm disgusted.
