Ramashiva did make it clear at the time that he wasn't 100% sure that that was Bea's real name, but,
as it turns out, his online detective work was worthy of his claimed 200+ IQ. Had he decided to
carry his investigation any further, it is almost certain he would have uncovered the whole truth in
very little time.
> What makes you so dead certain sure that ANY of that identifying information is correct?
'ramashiva' claimed that he extracted his information by typinbg her screen name into a search
engine and identifying a Zillow profile in Portland with the user name 'Bea Foroni'. Why isn't it
just as possible that any of the following 20 people are the one who set up that user name on
Zillow? https://www.facebook.com/public/Beatrice-Foroni Did it also never occur to you that she
may have set up that Zillow account to MISLEAD internet psychopaths?

Bea would usually slag my threads with comments that weren't relevant and even repeatedly accused me
of advocating slavery because I criticized some ahistorical posts of hers. My response was to
verbally repudiate her claims, not expose her physically to internet psychopaths. That seems to me
to be the manner in which a person with character would respond to it and I'm not nursing any ego
wounds over it.
> BTW- I'm not accepting any responses to this post.
If it hadn't been for this episode the world would have been robbed of one of the funniest Usenet
confessions ever. Bea kept homemade PVC spears and a baseball bat with WD40 on it by the door.
