Why you DO NOT collect sex-offender e-mail addresses

Somebody left an interesting comment to the previous posting. The commenter apparently didn't read this blog's history because I did comment on this last December (to tell the truth I had to dig back into the archive to be sure). But in any event I followed the given link and found this:

You know, the more I look at this the more I think somebody read this post and responded. "Offices in Moscow"? But if so they'd be beyond the reach of U.S. law.
