[discuss] [IANAtransition] VGN dynamic coalition and enhanced cooperation

Here are two more solutions to similar "puzzles," including the "Michel Gauthier" puzzle  In both cases, the solution (i.e., identity) is the same -- Jefsey Morfin.

First, all of the domain names involved in this effort (fsp4.net, jefsey.com, telepresse.com, and dnsa.org (and around 650 other domain names)) are  registered to the same street address:

120 chemin des Crouzettes
Saint Vincent de Barbeyrargues
Herault 34730

The registrant names vary somewhat (UTEL, UTELNET and WORLD at WIDE (twice) are used on these four).  However, on Google maps, this address appears to be a private residence in a residential area.  A number of houses here are tagged with names (presumably residents and/or owners). This location is tagged with the last name "Morfin."  Therefore it would appear that Jefsey Morfin is the owner of all of these domain names, despite the various aliases.

Second, the Wikipedia article on "Michel Gauthier" was apparently self-written (i.e., by the person purporting to be "Michel Gauthier"): the first comment on the history is "documenté l'action que je mène aprés avoir documenté mon nom "  ("documented my efforts after having documented my name ").  Therefore, the author must be "Michel Gauthier."   The author was not logged into Wikipedia, so the history only shows the IP address of the author:  The identity of "Michel Gauthier" may therefore be learned by following this IP address.

As a result of a search, I have found that this IP address is associated with jefsey at jefsey.com.  For example, in this email header (found at http://ftp.zut.edu.pl/dsk0/ftp.ietf.org/ietf-mail-archive/idn/2008-03.mail  ):

Received: from eurolab.net2.nerim.net ([]:4549 helo=asus.jefsey.com)
        by montage2.altserver.com with esmtp (Exim 4.68)
        (envelope-from <jefsey at jefsey.com>)
        id 1JWH2S-0003OI-1O; Mon, 03 Mar 2008 12:13:33 -0800

(Similar headers may be found at http://www.kde.ps.pl/mirrors/ftp.ietf.org/ietf-mail-archive/iucg/2009-08.mail and http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/iucg/current/msg00002.html among other places).

Therefore it would appear that "Michel Gauthier" is Jefsey Morfin.

That's enough for me.

The puzzle is easily solved, when you observe that this piece of drivel came via JFC's server, exactly like the drivel from "Michel Gauthier":

Received: from ([]:29325

Personally I will now add "mg at telepresse.com" and "alliance at fsp4.net" to my filters. It's gone from funny to annoying.
