If you look around, you’ll find that the two reporters involved don’t write anymore. Part of this is presumably due to the fact that Topiary told them what would happen if they did. Back then, I was just happy that it was getting noticed, but of course it was forgotten not long thereafter and has since been “revealed” again via NYT and New Yorker’s pieces on Psy-Group, which uses some new-fangled “avatars”. Am glad I finally got your name so you can get credit for going through the emails that other outlets disregarded, and pursuing it, and remembering it, and caring about it. It’s important that you get credit because people who do that need to be listened to, and those who don’t, don’t, and that’s the only way of making the distinction known.
