As our discussions continued, Zep Tepi shared that in the course of his clandestine monitoring the serpo.org communications he learned that the original "Anonymous" was using this email address - firstname.lastname@example.org.
By this time, it was clear that Victor's original Anon had been displaced. Of course, Centrist and Zep Tepi were quite keen to learn the identity of Victor's original Anon. We all knew Victor had a huge ego and that he must be devastated to have his Anon circumvent him and go directly to Bill Ryan with Serpo releases after 10.
It was Centrist who then came up with the idea of creating an email address of email@example.com and begin communicating with Victor in an effort to obtain the identity of Victor's original Anon. Victor was so obviously delighted to be back in touch with what he thought was the original Anon that he happily 'spilled the beans' so to speak. He sent the original Anon email he received to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is important to understand is that the only individual with access to email@example.com within our group at that time was Centrist. He would update us via MSN chat but did not give us any of the actual evidence that he had obtained until long after he quit.
When I explained to him that I wanted to publish everything we had and get this over with, he offered to give me access to firstname.lastname@example.org email account. Doing that gave us access to the original Anon email Victor had sent to what he believed was HIS original Anonymous.
Early on, I organized all of the important wizardofzin emails for Zep to use in the RU Serpo articles. I am uploading all of them here for you to reference.Next: Black Friday
