Well, like the intro says, he definitely has an axe to grind --
probably because according to those in the know (and as far as I have
been able to narrow his identity), the author is one of the lower
level production staff that got unceremoniously dumped around episode
16. And while he may not be the most unbiased of writers, AFAIK all
the facts check out.
Also interesting is that his Japanese writing style is -extremely-
similar to one of the hate e-mails that flashes on the screen in EoE.
