YIM - Chat with reggie, conference

Reggie came online just a bit ago on Yahoo Messenger and I started what I thought to be an innocent chat with him. Turned ugly, though.

reggie wrote:
jamesidude: i hear that there was a chat event tonight... were you aware?
xover222: no
xover222: i am sorry i may not talk much i am being pressured by the greys.
jamesidude: I'm sorry to hear that.
xover222: you solved his cypher.
jamesidude: I did.
xover222: you are trusted.
xover222: i am scared.
jamesidude: I know. I got a call.
jamesidude: I am not so much scared, but more curious.
xover222: no. i am not scared of him. i am not supposed to be on the computer.
xover222: god found out i was off my meds.
xover222: the smart people must have told him
jamesidude: Some of the smart people aren't so smart, I guess.
xover222: the greys are pushing HARD
jamesidude: What do the greys want, exactly?
xover222: the want caretaker
xover222: bad
xover222: they are scaring me
xover222: more
xover222: and more
jamesidude: Are they calling you? Showing up at your room?
xover222: they are online again
xover222: new names
xover222: again
jamesidude: Give them a message.
jamesidude: Tell them to go away.
xover222: they will not!
xover222: they go and the come. they go and they come
xover222: each time they get more angry.
jamesidude: Tell me one of their names. I will try to make you safe.
xover222: i will bring you to them..
xover222: you can see for yourself
jamesidude: bring me to them
xover222: why can they not leave me alone.
jamesidude: I want to help you Reg. You can trust me, despite how I might have presented myself before.
jamesidude: I am a friend.
....
jamesidude: Is Wheezy a friend of yours?


After the "I am a friend" line, Reggie invited me to a conference between himself and two others. From what I can ascertain, Magesteff was there too.

In the conference, a lot of people wrote:
handofeir: stop evading the questions, this is beginning to annoy me...
xover222: he made me promise.
forseti20002000: you need to tell us how this happened
xover222: he did it himself!
forseti20002000: remember what happened to Wheezy?
jamesidude: What's going on?
handofeir: Tell us what you know
xover222: wheezy did nothing
forseti20002000: Your meds might just become a bit more potent
xover222: i know what i know
jamesidude: Leave him alone!
handofeir: It's not enough
xover222: Red Knight is safe
forseti20002000: How did those files get there?
xover222: you are not secure it is not me who did it
xover222: Red Knight.
xover222: leave me alone...
forseti20002000: Who is Red Knight?
handofeir: who's the Red Knight then?
xover222: caretaker is red knight
xover222: red knight is caretaker.
xover222: GO AWAY
forseti20002000: Who is caretaker?
handofeir: Who's the bloody caretaker?
xover222: help me..
jamesidude: LEAVE HIM ALONE!
xover222: i cannot TELL
forseti20002000: This doesn't concern you
jamesidude: It does now!
forseti20002000: Reggie, we found you once before
xover222: steffmage make them STOP
handofeir: I think you two should go back to your playpen
forseti20002000: You remember what happened
xover222: you found me once i can run again
xover222: red knight keeps me safe.
handofeir: You don't know what you're dealing with here, I suggest you back off
forseti20002000: You are no longer safe
xover222: i am safe!
xover222: you cannot touch me.
jamesidude: I solved the second cipher! I'm the one you want.
forseti20002000: You are no longer safe
handofeir: We'll find you
xover222: no one can find me.
xover222: i wear my mask
xover222: red knight taught me
handofeir: There are people on their way looking right now.
jamesidude: Don't tell them anything else.
forseti20002000: Your mask is an illusion
forseti20002000: we already found you
xover222: you cannot find me
xover222: the smart people help keep me safe.
forseti20002000: We found Wheezy
forseti20002000: He was happy to 'share'
handofeir: We'll find your precious caretaker too
xover222: YOU FOUND WHEEZY
xover222: wheezy does not talk
forseti20002000: It didn't take much persuasion with Wheezy
xover222: wheezy did not tell you anything
handofeir: easy
handofeir: it should be even easier with you. Just tell us what you know and we might be lenient
jamesidude: don't say anything else
jamesidude: don't tell them anything
handofeir: The Red Knight, the Caretaker, we want names
xover222: No!
xover222: my secrets are mine.
xover222: i will talk to wheezy.
forseti20002000: "Reggie", You know that we know
xover222: he will tell me you lie.
xover222: you know what?
xover222: nothing!
forseti20002000: Marcus Andover
xover222: NO!
forseti20002000: Shall I continue?
xover222: wheezy does not talk!
xover222: how do you KNOW!?
forseti20002000: Who is caretaker?
handofeir: We know enough. Enough to make your life quite dangerous from now on
xover222: caretaker is the Red Knight he keeps me safe.
handofeir: Names!
xover222: steffmage they know my name.
handofeir: who is the caretaker?
forseti20002000: Caretaker will not be in a position to keep anyone safe shortly
xover222: you cannot find me. you may have my name but you cannot find me.
forseti20002000: RIP Marcus
handofeir: All the pieces? WE CONTROL THE BOARD
jamesidude: xover: they are grasping at straws. they have no proof to back up their claims
xover222: i must go.
xover222: they know my name
xover222: they know where wheezy is
xover222: they are coming for me
xover222: they said so
handofeir: you'll see us soon reggie
forseti20002000: We have already located you
forseti20002000: bah!


What does it all mean? Only time (and some diligent research) will tell.

I IMed Reggie when he showed up.
the private conversation wasn't much new, except that they are watching him a bit harder...

Quote:
magesteff: Hi Reggie
xover222: hi
magesteff: How are you feeing?
magesteff: We spoke to Red Knight tonight.
magesteff: Reggie, you told Enaxor you were palming your meds... is that true?
magesteff: Are they watching you?
xover222: yes
xover222: i am not supposed to be online
xover222: god found out
xover222: one of the smart people told him i bet.
magesteff: We don't even know who god is Reggie
xover222: someone does
xover222: he will be angry with me when he finds me in the library.
magesteff: Yes. It looks that way.
xover222: why do the greys want the Red Knight?
magesteff: Reggie, I can't answer that. I don't know who the greys are... and Red Knight was very evasive tonight
magesteff: Can you help me find out who the greys are?
xover222: i do not know who they are..
xover222: they are being mean to me
magesteff: I need someplace to start looking, and I'm sorry they are being mean to you. I don't like it when people are mean.
magesteff: can you tell me what the greys nicknames are then I can look for them and find out why they are being mean to you?
magesteff: And why they want the Red Knight?
(at this point I was invited to a conference chat room by Reggie)
Yahoo! Messenger: xover222 has logged out. (9/18/2003 11:29 PM)

While we were chatting the Greys contacted him and pushed a bit:
Two new IDs to add to the YIM list
forseti20002000
handofeir

They were trying to scare Reggie into naming names, including Red Knight. Note possible name Marcus Andover (probable Reggies "real" name)

Full log of conference call follows:

Isn't that the same convo as above?

FYI - In Norse mythology, Forseti is the god of justice.

The convos are the same EXCEPT that my comment could not be seen by Steff and vice versa.

Therefore, both convos include a lot of YOU ARE NOT ALONE! and LEAVE HIM BE YOU BAD BAD PEOPLE! from each of us. They say that a hero will save us, right Steff? Smile

Steff, my dear. We're on the same wavelength but on opposite ends of it.

We were in the same conference, that much is certain. You can see that by comparing the two logs. However, what is also evident is that we must have been invisible to each other. That is what I meant by me not being able to see your posts during the convo, and vice versa.

How could I surmise that you were in the conference if I hadn't seen your name, silly? I kept thinking "Geez, my name is jamesi... Why can't they get that straight?" Then it dawned on me that the PMs got sneaky and had us both there but not in plain sight of each other.

Just wanted to be sure no one else missed it like I did on the first read through, because both logs are so closely matched.

fwiw

(Hope this is the right place to respond -- I'm new here!)

Those are pretty eerie transcripts. Poor Reggie/Marcus!

Re: the "grey people" and their screennames,

Handofeir = "hand of Eir." Eir refers to the Norse goddess of healing. Could bring the dead back to life with herbs and potions. Her name, ironically enough, means "help." (The term "Hand of Eir" is a level one can reach in the RPG Dark Ages of Camelot.)

Forseti20002000: Forseti is also from Norse mythology; he is the God of justice. The numbers may be meaningless, maybe not.

Just rambling here, but I seem to remember one of Reggie's earlier IM transcripts including a reference to speaking with people with screennames out of Norse mythology. And yet, in the transcripts above, Reggie asserts that these two bullies (forseti20002000 and handofeir) are new to him.

So how many more "grey people" are there, and why do they all use Norse mythology refs in naming themselves? An ominous hint of Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods)?

(Sorry if I was out of line in mentioning this!)

As suspected, they were "throwaway" ID's. Neither of them is currently active on Yahoo. Used and then deleted (or changed to reference a different Norse god for the next round).

Hey Laz, do we know this for sure??? If we are just judging by the fact that they are not online, that doesn't necessarily indicate that they are throwaway ID's...they could be away or invisible?

Just wondering how you came to that conclusion (what evidence), 'cause there's a lot of SPEC'ing going on at present.

Thanks!!!

I think he means they aren't "active" accounts. A search in the directory yields no one by those nics.
