Interesting edit there, okay. Brushing off any intended or unintended arrogance; I do know a great deal about cytokinesis and cellular respiration, as well as the difference between eukaryotes, and prokaryotes. I would like to think myself decently educated.
Where you see no distinction between organic nanotechnology, and artificial/synthetic nanotechnology; I do. I think they are a far cry different from one another, but that remains my humble opinion. They do share many commonalities, however analogous they are, they are not identical. They contrast key differences which set them leagues apart. Primarily their affinity to shape the environment around them, unlike organic cells. Specifically the lack of self replication inhibitors organic technology inherently possesses.
And as an edit to be perfectly clear, I am discussing nanotechnology specifically based off of metallic structures, not cellular walls or membranes; thus my synthetic/organic definitions.
However, there are a couple of things I found that I wish I hadn't. Although I am 99% convinced this was a hoax there is a teeny bit of nagging doubt.
I think that we can all second that notion.
Maybe that's partially why I was so pissed. Maban WAS a friend.

Firstly "studies," and "expertise" are quite dissimilar. We have not technically "hijacked" but project the IP address as another, given that they are randomly assigned each time a host server is contacted we can use utilities which allow us to assume the IP address of a specific location using DHCP host servers. It helps when you have control over, or the ability to configure / reconfigure host servers of internet provides which allow you to "pick" the IP address you wish to assume. Granted it will be in the same region unless modifications are made, which as you would know make it more complicated, especially when tryign to avoid detection. However, in this instance we are not attempting to avoid detection. The IP address we are using does not correlate with our actual location, just our virtual one. As you know advanced resources can usually work past this and determine the physical location of even an IP address from another country being used in this one. Most individuals would not be able to discern our real location, but those with the proper hardware, software, and know how can; which is in a way what we are counting on.

Hello. I was a former member in that thread and my computer equipment met a rather untimely end. I believe my old handle was Illahee however the account information was long lost so I never got around to making a new ID until now.
He had no 'psychic powers' (so rest easy you oppressed folks) and could answer none of the questions that he should have been able to answer.
For the most part he was very entertaining for many so I felt I should let the river find its own course, so to speak.
Best to everyone that followed the yellow brick road,
Pippin, the artist formerly known as Illahee.

I am well alive, and unharmed. To my knowledge Tenzin and Kvasir are not Illuminons, I am unaware of who they are.
