The second one was me. I responded before Thane Q posted the decrypted message, but I made a few spelling errors since I didn’t realize it was morse code. I was trying to say: “UNWILLING TO POST MY CODENAME HERE STOP GIVE ME YOUR SECTOR STOP”

Anyone else willing to cooperate with the sender of message 1? I like the prospect of free information, but my identity may be compromised if I am the only one to respond. To the sender: I give no guarantees about my you-know-what.

(not posting the decrypted message here, but it’s a simple code, and the basic message should be fairly obvious even if you can’t crack the code)

I might cooperate, depending on what the deciphered message is.
I notice that “Agent” isn’t encrypted, while most of the rest of the message is. My guess is some sort of changing cipherkey that rotates every few characters. Maybe a Vinegere cipher or something…

Oh wait, I got it. I’ll cooperate.
