I'm not trying to mock anybody here but can you imagine trying to explain believing this stuff to like your kids or grandkids 20 years down the line? "Yes, they were posting on 4Chan, I thought they were secret agents. Yeah a bunch of people had already done the exact same shtick there but I was positive this time was legit. I was really sure for a few years that there was a massive military-backed purge of society underway, tens of thousands of major public figures getting arrested and charged, but all totally in secret. They decided the best way to reveal the horrible truth was having a bunch of online people do like a scavenger hunt." It just boggles the mind.
Also, isn't a Q clearance mostly about nuke info? Has the account ever posted anything that would be related to that?
