I talked with the reporter above and was told that this message was a
fake.  Adam has been doing investigative reporting on abuses of the
Internet, such as uncovering a recent pornography ring at LLNL, and,
apparently in "revenge," hackers are forging messages under his
username.  Please don't bother him with any phone calls or e-mail.
