Jean-Philippe Wispelaere, 28 has postings to a variety of travel themed internet web pages dispensing advice on traveling to a variety of countries including Iran and the Central African republic. Most of these posts pre-date his short service with the Australian Defense Intelligence Organization, but one post to the "Lonely Planet" from November 1998 contains information he alleges comes from the French foreign ministry. If you want to see what kind of guy betrays his country, you can check his posting history at Dejanews. His interest in a variety of subjects from sex techniques to military aviation can be retrieved from his posts at... http://www.deja.com. Click on "power search" and enter his e-mail addy email@example.com in the "author" box. Its pretty humorous but it should also be a reminder of what happens to your posts to usenet. == Some day, on the corporate balance sheet, there will be an entry which reads, "Information"; for in most cases the information is more valuable than the hardware which processes it. -- Adm. Grace Murray Hopper, USN Ret. == http://www.dis.org/erehwon/

I read and enjoy that site every day myself and I do not have a problem sharing my information with the readers of that site. However, since you appreciated my post to the Cloaks and Daggers listserv, I would have hoped that you would have either asked my permission to repost it, or would have at least credited me for my discovery. Despite the fact you changed it very little, I am sure you didn't attempt to commit plagiarism.
