In case anyone might get confused: Walt [Crawford] and Walter [Skold, I assume] are not the same person, are not related, do not share political views...
When I comment on blogs, I now normally sign either "Waltc" or "Walt Crawford" to avoid confusion--and I never use my full birth name (that is, with the "er") in any professional activities.
I would note that, to the best of my knowledge, Walter [Skold?] has no intention of confusing anyone as to who's who.
The pointer, for core readers of Cites & Insights: I'm inviting feedback on four specific aspects of Cites & Insights at my blog, Walt at Random. The first question went up yesterday; others will follow tomorrow, Thursday, and Saturday.
