  This is a fine example of how it can be an equally bad mistake to assume
someone's advice is trustworthy just because you know their name, as it is to
assume someone's advice is untrustworthy just because you don't know their
name.  See "Fallacy of appeal to authority " for further information, although
the corresponding-but-opposite fallacy of mistrusting a non-authority is less
commonly mentioned.

  Or IOW, I'm not _that_ Dave Korn!   ;)

    cheers,
      DaveK
