I wrote that Dan Gannon was maynard.

He had replied:

Now here is my first source, Alan Batie, the sysop of agora, who had written
to me in 9/6/91:

> I will forward your message to the admin of b-cpu
> (Dan Gannon,

  I do (or did):

  I run agora, and because I am a strong supporter of freedom of speech
  have bent over backwards accomodating this site because I do not want to
  cut off a site just because I disagree with their point of view.  This
  has caused some hassles with a few individuals who felt otherwise, and
  significant soul searching.  Providing news feeds is not what agora is
  about (and their feed is limited), and I asked them to get a connection
  to uunet, as that is what they are for.  They suggested a compromise,
  which I agreed to, which was that they would keep their stuff in
  alt.revisionism, or soc.history.revisionism(.holocaust?).

  At this point, however, I grow weary.  I know for a fact that Dan Gannon
  is Maynard, as at one point he'd installed a phone line here so that he
  could get a full feed (there was a misunderstanding over who was going
  to provide what sort of a modem on my end, and the line was cancelled
  however).  During the conversations, he so identified himself, and a
  phone line confirmation notice was sent here in the name of Dan Gannon.

  I'm tired of this "group"s abuse of netiquette.  I'm tired of their
  manners and when they won't even identify themselves and in fact lie
  about it, that's the last straw.  As of this point, their connection
  to agora is terminated.
