Ah, just received word on my theory.

And Captain Chaos is off the list. :P

As for Slamm-0!, I doubt it. He's a great hacker, but he's the one that pointed it out in Attitude, and that would make him waaaaay more enigmatic than I think he is. And baby may have TM abilities, but I don't think (s)he's (do we know the sex yet?) got the language and life experience for those posts.
Oh well.  So much for getting our Captain back.   :'(  *Pours a 40 on the curb*

As for the baby, I did suggest that, perhaps, (s)he DLed knowledge through Mommy...  Language might be part of that.  Doesn't have the hardware developed yet for language, but the software and wetware might be ready.  Might also explain the lack of a username.  (S)He might not even have the concept on one for him/her self yet.
Ah, he's still out there, this just ain't him. ;)

A) It appears to be someone with key interest in Central/South America (two direct comments on Atzlan, one on Cartels)
B) There's no smart-alec 'nyah-nyah' tones to the posts. They're all direct and to the point, so it means someone has either:
- 1) Gone to a lot of trouble to post useful comments with an unrecognisable ID... for no real reason
- 2) Registered the alias 'A.Nonymous' (is this any worse than a runner going by E.Nigma or N.Cognito?)
- 3) JP knows who it is, but there are some comms conflicts causing the poster's alias to not be recognised

I also don't recall Fastjack making any comments querying the identity of this poster, or concerns with unidentified posts, which implies he either:
A) Knows who it is
B) Knows how they're getting in.

His error reports on JackPoint (Did it ever get past Alpha/Beta stages?) say to alert him to anything like it, but he probably already knows about it.

Be interesting to see who this poster is.  AI With No Name, icon like that of a young Clint Eastwood?   :P

Yes, per the JackPoint login screen, it appears they are getting in without FastJack's approval:

The plot thickens... Maybe the Dawkins Group? They are sniffing around Jackpoint.

Pyramid Watcher would hav no reason to post anonymously. Slam-O, I agree witht he poster above. Netcat´s little one, meh, I hope not, and it dosn´t make a lot of sense. Dawkins Group, maybe, but I´d imagin their MO to be more subtil then anonymous hack-in posts.

Alice didn´t realy have a problem with Aztech, but rather with Thomas Roxborough! Now Roxy left the Aztech Board some time ago...

Now it might be Rox. He has a lot of intel on the Big A and probbaly some antipathy for them, after he left, and he would have an interest to stay anonymous. The fat blob also spent a lot of time in the matrix, so he might have picked up some trix - or else use UniOmni Support. Anyway, I don´t beleave it´s him.

Maybe someone from inside of AZT? They have a record of hacking Shadowland.

Alice survived Crash 2.0?  I'd be amazed if she did.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Not so sure:

    —So this is how it ends: Alice sucked down her own rabbit-hole …

Roxy could know about JackPoint, too, since KAM was a guest user in Augmentation.

He's not known to be subtle, though, having appeared in SOTA:2063 and SOTA:2064 with ... unkind comments about KAM & crew.

But do any of these actually mention A.Nonymous?

re: War!
FastJack is not saying there is a problem, just that he'll generally notice them first (because he's smug like that :P) Also, A.Nonymous posted in this book, and FJ didn't mention any actual problems here.

re: Parazoology
Just because someone tried, doesn't mean they got in. This sounds like the standard 'please update your virus check software' line any good admin would promote.

re: Attitude:
What is he actually referring to? I would expect that if there's a serious issue, FJ would make mention of it near the event (or posting).
A.Nonymous does post in this source, but FJ doesn't mention any issues here?

I'm just not thinking A.Nonymous is a problem ID. It looks more and more like a legitimate username. Now if the ID instead said: <User Unknown> then I'm sure all this conjecture would be warranted.

Until then, who says it's anything but an actual legitimate UserID?
