It would appear that "Mike Asher" is a fictitous entity.  A week ago, I
got a message from Cameron Spitzer that "Mike Asher" was a payed wise use
propaganda mouthpiece; I posted this allegation in the form of a question
for "Mike" to answer. (In a recent thread-- maybe the EF! one, or forests,
or old growth). He(it/they) has not been heard of since that time. 
I expect that he(it/they) will reappear under another name.. He(it/they) is
easy to spot--- he posts propaganda over and over, and then denies it.
When long, factual posts are returned, he(it/they) ignores them.
