Actually, not. I have no intention of passing your message on. Checking
my sent mail...oops. Mea culpa. I implied that I wasn't going to say
anything, but I didn't say outright that I wasn't. I apologize. The
meaning of my message was that there are certain statements that go
beyond expressing opinion, and are actionable if they can't be backed
up. Accusing people of illegal activity happens to be one of them. You
could have made the same statements as opinion rather than fact by using
appropriate qualifiers, such as "questionable" rather than "illegal".
If, of course, you can prove the illegality of the actions, then you
have nothing to worry about; truth is always an absolute defense.
I have recently gotten into (and out of) some trouble for something I
have written here (NOT from the TS, and saying any more about will get
me even deeper), and I am therefore extra-sensitive about the
possibility of others getting into trouble.
Once again, no threat was intended on my part, only a warning of what
others might do, and I apologize if such a threat was inferred.

I didn't know that you had an older male sibling. Is he a lawyer? If
so, then he can advise you far better than I could. I have to make the
assumption that you are not resorting to a cheap device like calling the
victim an inflammatory name in order to get sympathy.

Then why don't you inform the IRS? Isn't there a reward for turning in
tax violators? That way, you make money instead of it costing you money.
