Anybody who is at all 'Internet savvy' will be able to discern that these are real people, and anybody who knows the ROC will understand the reason for anonymous posting, namely because of fear of reprisals and retaliation from ROCers. Pastor himself has threatened in sermons to “punch out” people who criticize certain ROC leaders. He is a very muscular weightlifter guy, and could do a lot of damage with his hands. Likewise with a certain "Joe Jacoby number 66" type of guy. Mr. SWAT can also be mentioned.
New readers can also do what I did a few days after I found this group, e-mail a few people on the group, dialog with them, and then meet with some to discuss the postings on the group, and the issues overall.
My main current contact was a prominent leader in the ROC for a number of years.
Perpaps I meant local richmond media like the Richmond Times Dispatch or NBC 12. Some people do not even believe these post are done by real people but they WILL believe anything that is reported in the news or in newspapers.
