Review.

"del Rosario" only posts occasionally to rec.games.chess.politics, and even=

less to rec.games.chess.misc or alt.chess.

There is a period of 3,182 hours (9/11/2008 01:33 -0700 to 1/21/2009 22:36
-0700) when "del Rosario" does not post at all to the chess newsgroups.

Then, an allegedly fake "del Rosario" post arrives, and somehow in 4 hours
the real "del Rosario" (fake name) notices this crime and posts a denial.

3,182 hours without any posting, then 4 hours with 2 postings !

There are only three credible explanations for this.

"del Rosario" spends a lot of time in the newsgroups posting under
(other) pseudonyms, and so quickly spotted it.

"del Rosario", for some unknown reason, possibly disinformation, used the=

anonymizing remailer to spoof himself.

"del Rosario" was tipped off by someone else that he had been spoofed.


4. Lurking. There is much of that in this group (*.politics)
