Subject: Is this really Mr. Pournelle?

Is this really from Jerry Pournelle, science fiction author and columnist
in Byte Magazine - or is someone on the net impersonating him?

I find it hard to believe that a professional writer would put out something
like this, even to a limited public audience. Several of the other recent
submissions from POURNE@mit-mc are similar in English quality. Typos
are one thing, 'even yet already' is another.
