While I like the fact someones analysed all this and come to a
conclusion, I believe its the wrong conclusion.
In my opinion n3td3v was always one person. He's Scottish from
Edinburgh, posted in various states of mind ranging from straight
headed, to blindly drunk. Also you have to take into consideration
that he could be a paranoid schizophrenic. OK so I'm no doctor or
personality analyst, but it did look that way sometimes.
Also, the impression that there are more than one person was only ever
given by himself. Starting a google group means fuck all, all I ever
saw was listings of posts on all the mailing lists. That means
nothing. I could start the colweb group now on google and claim to be
a group of security specialists, doesnt mean its true.
Also there was a couple of instances where people impersonated him, so
that might muddy the water somewhat. Also didnt help that he used 2 or
3 email addresses from time to time to get past blocking.
So I stick to my personal opinion of the great man -
1. One person
2. Good intentions overall
3. Not great communication skills (depends how drunk he is)
4. Too paranoid for his own good
5. Living in Ediburgh
6. Most likely Scottish
