#1: BLO people can PM me to obtain the key for encrypting and decrypting the message.

#2: I think this fix will help BLO, because it will completely prevent the other factions winning without having to come in an at least try to get the Relic legally.

Yoda:

Tunafish?

Qwazukee:

01-09-2009 06:41:13 UTC

This must be a very ingenious encryption method. . . .

Yoda:

01-09-2009 06:41:56 UTC

All this says is “tunafish”.

Qwazukee:

01-09-2009 06:49:45 UTC

Very ingenious indeed; even after Yoda has decrypted it, I still have no idea what it means.

arthexis:

01-09-2009 06:53:12 UTC

Yoda believes that is all there is to it! But there is a second step to the decryption!!

Yoda:

01-09-2009 07:19:01 UTC

You’re bluffing.  This is just another harmless proposal made purely to create suspicion like the Relic Dusting proposal.

Face it, arth.  I cracked your encryption method.

arthexis:

01-09-2009 15:16:14 UTC

Nope. And hopefully this will pass and make me happy…

Rodlen:

I would like to announce that this is obviously spam, and should therefore be deleted.

Amnistar:

01-09-2009 17:25:56 UTC

Rod, nope, BLO has it’s own encryption thing, this falls under it.

Klisz:

01-09-2009 17:35:13 UTC

Yoda: How DO you decrypt BLO proposals?

Amnistar:

01-09-2009 18:26:45 UTC

I’d like to know as well, and just for kicks and giggles…

...according to Yoda’s decryption method, this says “(Mv1Jm9H q`a9ms@i7Ife9L21Rn2HC!\R2X,FK9N 3MviB 8.)l@m:\nBDo9”...

Klisz:

01-09-2009 19:42:18 UTC

Hold on a second. Using Yoda’s endcryption method, though, the word “tunafish” does, in fact, turn up this proposal.

Ok, I definitely don’t understand. Where are you getting this?

Klisz:

01-09-2009 23:13:17 UTC

I’ll never tell you the BLO encryption method.

...alright, I will. spammimic.com

Qwazukee:

01-09-2009 23:32:43 UTC

I see how you get tunafish going backwards, but I can’t get it going forwards; I have no idea how Yoda came up with tunafish in the first place.

Klisz:

01-09-2009 23:36:13 UTC

Same here. By the way, my encrypted message is “all your base are belong to spartaaaaa”. I don’t remember how many A’s I put in the word Sparta.

Yoda:

01-09-2009 23:45:29 UTC

When you decrypt the spam, you have to make sure all the ‘s and “s are plain text.  It’s actually quite a pain.

Klisz:

01-09-2009 23:56:07 UTC

What do you mean by “plain text”?

Klisz:

01-09-2009 23:58:59 UTC

Never mind, figured it out.

Yoda:

01-10-2009 00:16:03 UTC

Like I said… quite a pain.

Klisz:

01-10-2009 00:26:00 UTC

Not really, if you use Ctrl+H (in Notepad).

Klisz:

01-10-2009 00:43:37 UTC

Or Wordpad.

Qwazukee:

01-10-2009 01:15:42 UTC

5 a’s. That was annoying to do.

Klisz:

rlm grlr civv asm evlpvj ko txditbidra

Qwazukee:

01-10-2009 02:18:23 UTC

Not another one! Unless this is our new one.

Klisz:

01-10-2009 02:23:28 UTC

The thing I just posted is Yoda’s idea of GNO’s new method.

Qwazukee:

01-10-2009 02:48:11 UTC

Perfect! I can’t understand it at all.

Klisz:

01-10-2009 02:57:32 UTC

It translates to the same thing as my example BLO string: all your base are belong to spartaaaaa.

Yoda:

01-10-2009 05:51:16 UTC

Don’t give away all our secrets…

Wakukee:

01-10-2009 06:10:00 UTC

just adjust the code slightly.

Klisz:

01-10-2009 16:32:30 UTC

Oh come on. I didn’t say how to decrypt it, I just decrypted it for Qwazukee. No problem with that.

Klisz:

01-10-2009 16:33:15 UTC

Plus, the code is so flexible, the same lines could be very different and translate to the same thing.

Klisz:

01-10-2009 21:25:57 UTC

That, and the code slightly changed.

arthexis:

01-11-2009 04:14:25 UTC

Some members of BLO have requested the encryption method, and I’ve sent it to them. While Yoda got some of it right, there is more meaning to this than it looks at first.

Klisz:

01-11-2009 05:40:51 UTC

Sure there is…

Wakukee:

01-11-2009 07:45:41 UTC

“tunafish” = secret codeword for “invade GNO and bring them down from the inside.”
