Wow. You actually got an email back? That's weird. Haven't heard of that happening to anyone for a while.
That inbox must be spammed up with emails.

It's definately a hoax of some sort. You're right. Just don't know how many people are involved or to what extent the rumours criculating are true.

Well I sent this guy an email yesterday, His name is Frank Webster by the way. I asked for a job and he answer back asking which software packages I was familiar with. I reply none basically and he reply again:

That's unfortunate.

I am looking for somebody who can create Polybius for the I-phone.

Don't contact me again.
Good luck with your job hunt.

He seemed genuine to me and I believe he might be getting quite a few e-mails from conspiracy nuts. Do not contact me again looks like " I've gone through this before kind of thing". Cool story but not Antichrist here as far I am concerned.

Interesting. I realize the reference is to the video game, and they mention its namesake in the wiki. However, just as with every other funny little detail in this mess, it's a layered cake.


Polybius was responsible for a useful tool in telegraphy that allowed letters to be easily signaled using a numerical system (mentioned in Hist. X.45.6 ff.). This idea also lends itself to cryptographic manipulation and steganography.
1 2 3 4 5
1 A B C D E
2 F G H I/J K
3 L M N O P
4 Q R S T U
5 V W X Y Z
This was known as the "Polybius square", where the letters of the alphabet were arranged left to right, top to bottom in a 5 x 5 square, (when used with the modern 26 letter alphabet, the letters "I" and "J" are combined). Five numbers were then aligned on the outside top of the square, and five numbers on the left side of the square vertically. Usually these numbers were arranged 1 through 5. By cross-referencing the two numbers along the grid of the square, a letter could be deduced.
In the Histories, he specifies how this cypher could be used in fire signals, where long-range messages could be sent by means of torches raised and lowered to signify the column and row of each letter. This was a great leap forward from previous fire signaling, which could send pre-arranged codes only (such as, 'if we light the fire, it means that the enemy has arrived').

Wow. Great research. Very interesting indeed.

No idea what it could all mean. Just cryptic trolling I suppose.

So how would the polybius code work?

Translate the above sentence.

I just sent a new email, this one a legitimate message.

Since he seems to have ignored my know, if he doesn't respond to this one, I'm just going to give his address to a bunch of companies. His mailbox won't have room for the spam.

Oh, I'm a malicious troll when I choose to be...and absolutely relentless.

Yep. That's one of the many mysteries.

Apparently an anonymous member from 4chan contacted Frank at that email address and said.
"So the antichrist has an Australian email address huh?"

To which they got the reply "Would it make it easier if the antichrist had a physical location..say.. somewhere.. Down under?"

How about the antichrist is mooty?

Well, if you replaced the 1 in the corner of the previous example with a 0, it would go something like this:


Special surprise for anyone who decodes this. Brilliant system...almost as good as the one involving symbols such as _| or |_| for A and I, respectively. I don't remember what it's called.

Let me know if you decode it. If you do, congrats for wasting your time.

I got a response. Apparently, Frank desires a carrier pigeon. I told him I have a hunting falcon (completely false). Let's see what he says.

Unfortunately, I keep getting a filter block. Apparently, it's got some kind of pornography involved.

Why has no one mentioned anything about porn on that site? They act like it's just an interesting page...someone said something about art...

I wasn't aware of any pornography in the site?

I've seen this years and years ago when I had a downloaded copy of "The Anarchist's Cookbook." It claimed to be blue prints for a bomb, but I don't think there's nearly enough information here to pull it off, let alone come up with the plutonium.

Any help?


GO HERE... (I've found 2 or 3 screens that missed, but is no big deal/no mystery in the end)

It's highly likely that the entire Donnie Darko fiasco was a ruse created by a second, even unrelated hoaxter..

So it is unsurprising if searches on these website don't weigh up to anything...

For those of you who have kept up with my experiment regarding "Frank", I have returned an email to him saying that I bought a carrier pigeon for him, and requested an address to send it to.

Let's see what comes of it.
