Ok, edited to maintain a better level of privacy for PR. The remaining message is pretty harmless and I don't feel that it violates his privacy. If other's feel the same as Ray, please PM me and tell me so. I realize that my level of comfort with regards to online privacy probably differs from others and so it's certainly possible that some things that I don't bat an eye at would make other's skin crawl.
My thinking in posting this communication was that of a journalist; sharing the facts. Photoresearcher is self-admittedly not fond of the computer, and it occured to me that perhaps I had a "rare document" that would be of interest to anyone awaiting word on his project. By including his name (removed now) I thought in some naive way that maybe it was only fair; to give the credit to an actual person and not just an online persona.
Ray, I definitely see your point and concede to a degree, but in life and online, I'd rather push someone's comfort zone for the greater good than shy away for fear of the potential and thus leave nothing for nobody.
I think you did the right thing.

I am actively documenting this stuff myself,
so I run into the problem all the time...
but strangely, some people inexplicatively fall down when pushed!
Maybe he doesn't mind a bit and will ask you to be his "electronic interface" afterall.
Thanks Ray, let's hope so!
Very interested in this thread. Subbed.
Getting kodachrome back would be sweet, even if under another name...
It is very difficult to replicate the Kodachrome film emulsions and coatings. It is just as difficult to replicate the process!
I seriously doubt if we will see anything but high quality B&W films from this effort.
I've been corresponding with photo researcher a bit lately and it sounds like he's making good progress. Very interesting stuff!
I've encouraged him to post some images, so fingers crossed.
