None of the above.  I was trying to understand the link between your
original post, which was merely a link to your own weblog or some kind 
of BBS or something, and the VIC project which as you say is now in Python.

Only after you pointed it out.  And "the project" was not mentioned in
your original post, and neither was Python.  I was attempting to figure
out the connection, and still am.

Nix that: I don't care any more, since obviously there is at least in your
mind some kind of link, and now that we are clearly talking about the VIC,
the original post is irrelevant.

I did both, and still found no link (no pun intended).

Your original post did not identify you.  We're not psychic.

I won't argue that point, except to ask if your email address which 
you claim was "protected" was ever posted to a public site or newsgroup
ever in the past.  If it was, you had no protection and have no case 
against Scott.  I suspect both the mindspring and the threeseas addresses
have appeared on the net repeatedly.
