I have no problems with doing that. My only reservation is to that
fingers would point to us directly, and we would receive less cooperation
than we already are. I am in favor of taking this underground, and not
directly pointing it to Arabeyes. Posting anonymously on several boards,
discussion forums, etc. and directing people to email the people
in charge with pleas, etc. 

Think of it as, 'Arabeyes Covert Operations' ;)
