Gee, well this makes the third time that Howard has mysteriously
replicated my work within a few weeks of my publicly releasing it, and
neglected to cite me. (the first time he claimed not to see my prior
work and I believed him). I actually told a few people the last two
times I did work that I was waiting for Howard and VoteTrustUSA to
replicate it afterwards and neglect to cite me because that seems to
be their modus-operandi.

I actually redid the work of Rivest all by myself but then checked
with Rivest and found out that he'd done it previously, so cited
Rivest as having done the work first, unlike Howard who seems to be
unaware of all my work, even after my frequent conversations with him
after the first time he replicated my work and released it without
citing me.
