his name was figured out, but he wasn’t doxxed in the sense that anyone wanted to hurt him. it was very much of a “wow! cool! an ancient internet mystery solved! holy fuck!” kind of thing
but I’m looking at twitter, and even some news sites, and they’re painting it as if it were angry homestuck fanatics doxxing dril, which totally isn’t what happened. no one was angry. people felt like they had discovered something.
was the end result, that dril’s name got out, the same? yeah, and it’s kind of shitty. we got caught up in the excitement. I know I became part of the problem by posting about it. but considering he put his real name in the hiveswap credits, it was only a matter of time. but did anyone mean anything bad by it? no!!!
