Mystery Poster "Deep Modem"
Advertisements [?]
Is mystery poster "Deep Modem" spilling inside info? Or creating chaos?

It has been about a month now since this issue appeared on DU:
kpete Tue Jul-31-07 12:05 PM
CLUES? - Bushco Already Caught? - Is This "Mystery Poster" Another "DeepThroat"?

kpete wrote: The depth of knowledge is stunningthis is really incredible reading guys, go there and spend some time ...

To those who have spent time, as advised, how productive has that time been?
And, kpete, please tell us what you have learned, if you took your own advice.


Let's back up a bit. I'm one of the Mystery Posters. That's right. Anyone who posts without placing something in the name field at TPM will be a mystery poster too.

So the first question is, "How many Mystery Posters are there?"

And the second question is, "How do we know which posts belong to the so-called "Deep Modem"?"

My first reaction to the first purported "Deep Modem" post I read was "free association disorder" frankly.


OBJECT OF THIS THREAD: To identify/assemble the Deep Modem posts.
Please place post links (DM Link) and quote as fair use allows.

And, of course, to address the wider issue in light of the assembled posts, "What is going on here?"

This thread is spinning off of:

Kpete...BlackHatJack...anon is back, Can you explain this to me?
