Well, it was pointed out to me that when Mei Hui sent out that email letting everyone know that she was going to NYC, she didn't bother to BCC the addresses, so anyone could have my email by now..

grrrr.

One can only hope.. I mean, she seems to be the one who is down in the dumps the most... though it looks like the blues are hitting alot of the 6 now...

Sounds like we gotta make sure to support her...

I also got a message from the same email:

Keep looking for more!
Keep looking up!

The only connection I see this with a game is the Ravenwood College(and this, the two ARG I am currently into). You can find on their page is "seek the spiral..", which seems to be connected with the email. That is, if Dante is participating in that game..Dante?
If not and the other players on MeHui's CC got the same email then it must be from that, so that's two down and a couple to go.

Eh, I got an email too:

Sapo mortigas mikrobojn!

Esperi!


I was also on Mei Hui's mail list.

I wrote back asking "Who are you?" and I just got this:
Quote:
L'important n'est pas de gagner, mais de participer.


This is a famous quote from the real Pierre de Coubertin: The important thing is not to win, but to take part.



I dunno, this is starting to feel like a gamejack..

Kay.
Apparently Momonga's email translates to:
"You kill microbes with soap. Hope!"

Code?

I messaged back and asked what am I suppose to look for and I got a reply just now:
Quote:
We are the defenders of the Agonothetai.

I'm starting to feel this is a gamejack also.. whoever's behind this must have also seen my profile in the findthelostring.com which would also make sense on what I'm suppose to look for (my expertise).

Well actually the Esperanto reads

"Soap kills microbes. To hope!"

Whatever that means.

As we're dealing with the ancient olympic games, and not the one Pierre de Coubertin recreated, i'm also feeling that it's not revelant.

Just a bunch of fans who emailed you their support, i think.

I received a similar e-mail some days ago, it said:

Quote:
Aguanta! Estamos cuidando de ti!


which means something "like Hang on! We are watching over you!"
As this is the only ARG I'm consistently playing right now, I assumed it was something about this and twittered about it... didn't know what was about, anyway...

And well, I've not been in contact with that many of the six... some mails with diego and monica I think, but... I use my mail in so many places, it would be extremely easy to find it.

Sounds like nothing useful has come out of these random e-mails, nor have any new leads, and inquiries back result in nonsense. Probably something to ignore, just like certain forum posts that we have ignored for ages now (like the ones from that person who talked about watching us and walking and strolling). Of course, if anything more interesting/useful comes from that e-mail address, we might start looking into it again.

Diego twittered:

This has been keeping me up all night, I'm really curious to know if it's IG or not.
