Closing Thought–22Feb22

Since our society functions now on conspiracies and one of the most moronic is the one they call “QAnon”….and the brains behind this silliness has remained a mystery…..that is until now….

he QAnon movement got its start in 2017 when somebody known as “Q” began posting conspiracy-laden messages online. Now, two independent teams of linguistic sleuths say they have settled the question about Q’s identity, reports the New York Times. Both have concluded that Q is actually two people. The theory is that the original posts were written by Paul Furber, a software developer and tech journalist from South Africa. But at some point in 2018, Ron Watkins of the US took over. Watkins ran the 8chan message board—now known as 8kun—where the posts gained popularity. For the record, both deny it.

heir names have surfaced before as likely candidates, and an HBO documentary asserts that Watkins inadvertently admitted to it on camera. The new analyses—one by Swiss researchers and the other by a French team—made use of machine learning to pore over posts by Q and compare them to posts made by Furber, Watkins, and others. Both say it’s a near certainty that Q has been revealed, and two experts who reviewed the findings for the Times say they make a strong case.

Furber, for his part, explains away the similarities of his writing and Q’s by saying that Q influenced him so much that he began mimicking him. The analysts dispute that. Watkins, who is running for Congress in Arizona, says simply, “I am not Q.” But the 34-year-old also praises the Q posts and says “there is probably more good stuff than bad” in them. Read the full story, which notes that Q has been silent since December 2020

Since 06 January failed coup attempt by the idiots on the far right Q and his cronies have gone from social media…..not to worry if you are one of the idiots that drinks their Kool-Aid…..he FBI thinks QAnon will strengthen as it decentralizes.

  1. It is one of the best organised and strongest groups in that field, and definitely inspired much of the attack on the Capitol. Luckily for us, it has little influence in the UK.
    Best wishes, Pete.
