As well you could be, because you appear to have the same name as a
registered sex offender:

I'm surprised that medline.com is offering network access as an ISP?
Admittedly, you began posting to NANOG in 2002 as:

   Network Engineering Manager
   Hosting.com - Chicago

While I was involved in engineering NSFnet and the Internet and was an
"original" member of NANOG, but I don't remember you.  Of course, I'm
notoriously bad with names.

OTOH, I have met, remember, and greatly respect the Tor engineers.
