Unwanted email from Express Forum commentators?
Original post made by CDSI Research on Feb 2, 2012
Are you receiving emails from no-reply email addresses signed by Informed Resident and other Danville Express Town Square Forum commentators?

Not sure what you are up to, but I can assure you I am not sending anything to anyone on this forum. I cannot speak for others. If this is another one of your conspiracies or your latest effort to make someone look bad, I ask that you cease and desist.
There are some very desperate people trolling this forum and I would not put anything past them.

The response to CDSI Member Information, as firstname.lastname@example.org, provides the obvious reality that pseudonyms used by Express Forum commentators are not exclusive to one author. From Orinda to Discovery Bay, CDSI Media members are receiving emails received from the no-reply email addresses signed by Informed Resident and more.
It is the reality of pseudonyms that nothing restricts their usage by any one individual and political usage of high-impact pseudonyms from the Express Forum seems to disarm the probable campaign sources of such email hate mail. "If it plays in Danville, it must play everywhere!"
Using a no-reply email address allows such campaign attacks to avoid immediate detection. Once detected, such addresses simply are moved by major campaign supporters to other servers.
That quite doesn't matter because CDSI Media members have the CONTENT and can correlate the purpose of the attacks against neighborhoods and their reps throughout district 2 and 3. E-exchanges are addressing the content now with neighborhoods and fact-checking the commentary. Clearly, the attacks are simply that without content.
Thank you to those that responded and more, thank you to readers that are prepared to have their groups challenged by such attacks.

Doesn't the obvious beg the question;
Where (or how) would one get the email address list(s)of Danville Express Town Square forum "readers"? Wouldn't one have to be a psychic to perform that miracle?
If you have an example, letter or email I would love to see it. After all, aren't you blaming me for it?
...and yet I have no idea what you are even talking about.
