I recently got a comment from an individual who wished to both remain anonymous and offered to communicate privately in the future. This is notice that I accept the offer of further communication and await your instructions on how we may communicate privately.
However, I’m going to comment on the substance but not the specifics of what they informed me of. I understand the individuals need to remain anonymous, and respect it. What I guess I’m asking my readers is more information from their various points of view as to the accuracy of the claims.
Maybe I don’t see it, because I’m so new to the issues, but this commenter (I need a cool name for this individual. How about Ghost?) believes that this whole Hoge/Schmalfeldt mess is all about Right vs. Left politics. Ghost went back for several years, if not a decade, with a laundry list of wrongs and such, claiming both sides have done wrong. Well, I agree with Ghost on that, I’ve seen plenty of misdeeds on either side of the H/S situation, but I don’t think Ghost is limiting it to that one thing.
Me, I don’t fit comfortably on the right or the left. I’m far left of republicans and far right of democrats. I prefer to think of myself as a libertarian (small ‘L” intended, I’m not a Libertarian), so maybe I don’t have the proper framework to hang this on. But what about the rest of my readers? Do you think this is a small skirmish in the Right vs. Left issue? Or is it a minor but entertaining flame war on a back channel of the Interwebs? Or something else all together?
Regardless, I’ve always said that it is the actions of individuals I’m interested in. I admit I’m curious as to the details Ghost is willing to share with me once Ghost feels safe communicating with me. Till then, I await your opinions.
UPDATE: I did check out the incoming IP address used by Ghost, and it is clear Ghost is using a VPN of some sort to hide Ghost’s location.
