I'm relocating the following here to Talk as it perhaps is more appropriate to post it here both as a commentary on how Bray has been hiding his agenda in plain sight and as an illustration of how others may have done the same.
- Googling, for example, "monitortan.com", bush, reveals that Bray, using his email addy "firstname.lastname@example.org", has the habit of forwarding politically significant articles to blogspots with his own personal opinion/editorial inserted as a preface.
Although it is assumed that his political "activism" emerged during the 2004 campaign, this from 2002 shows that he was using the "email@example.com" addy much earlier:
From: Hiawatha Bray <firstname.lastname@example.org>

To: email@example.com, ip <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: RE: <[IP]> speech by Rep Stark. D Calif
Bray's assessment of Stark is scathing and a good example of his later treatment of John Kerry:
- "The only thing that's stunningly clear from this speech is that Rep. Stark
is a fool. This crude, insulting, ill-argued pile of claptrap would be a lifelong embarassment to the man, if he had the sense to understand his own folly. ... Among Stark's more glaring idiocies:"
I suspect that he has been much the same thing between 2002 and 2003, but using another email addy.
For whatever reason, Bray has done a number of articles on outsourcing, particularly about the Phillipines.

Another example, this time using addy "email@example.com":
