The Fuddy post was a nearly 3 month old resurrection from late January. The dude who thought it was a good idea to bring it back was ace1spike1. Who knows who that is, but its likely Fuddy himself. You are right, a Fud by any other name is still a Fud. No reason to believe otherwise. Once a sow's ear always a sow's ear.
For the record, Yahoo received the subpeona. Certain posters received notice that their personal information would be turned over to MadCatz in compliance with the subpeona. Those posters will at some future date be named as defendants in MCZ's lawsuit, or they may never hear anything else at all.
