Below are some comments from Disqus. Neal has stated several times that he's not had any communication with Thomas Retzlaff. That is not true.
Neal says that he gets emails from the ViaViewFiles admin, Dean. The blog is run by Thomas Retzlaff and "Dean" is a known alias of Retzlaff. Neal knows this.
It's weird that Rauhauser is notified of the IPs of visitors to Retzlaff's blog and is made aware when police officers or FBI agents visit ViaViewFiles.
