Re: Andre Lopes

I don't know Andre in person, and have only exchanged some e-mails with him
once or twice. But I'd like to add to the chorus. His name only, is not enough
to claim any evidence on the subject, specially because "Andre Luis" is a
common composite name in Brazil, as "Lopes" is also a common surname.
I am pretty sure there are many "Andre Luis Lopes" in Brazil, as there 
probably are many "John Simpson"s in the US, for instance.

And Andre, if that is not you, be aware that there is some homonymous
of yours doing nasty things abroad :)
