Default What was leaked?

What was leaked?

Anybody who has been reading Susan Polgar's Blog and also her
discussion group at chess discussion dot com will have seen that she
repeatedly complains about leaks and about threats made against her
children. See also where her supporter Gregory Alexander writes,
"Brian Lafferty used our internal FOC conversations that were leaked

"To others, this name means nothing. However, I believe that it is a
message that he is sending to me, that he can dig up information if he
wants to. The email to Susan also contains similar "vague" clues.

"The AUG states: "Before you post a message that is intended to
embarrass, humiliate or harass another person or group of people, stop
