    Your explanation is not plausible. Here's the discussion you reference, where you claim to have acquired the Azuma Hazuki 2.0 account: []

    In that discussion, the Azuma Hazuki 2.0 account is complaining about alleged admin abuses, just as you are doing now. I find that interesting.

    Moving on, however, Azuma Hazuki clearly said:

    Do me a giant fucking favor and don't try to use me to push whatever agenda you have, okay? If this were really about moderator/admin abuse, you'd have registered a name that looks like Uzzard's at first glance, *not* mine. This is kind of funny in a juvenile way, but it's also gross and creepy.

    In response, Azuma Hazuki 2.0 responded claiming to give away the password to the account. If you actually found that password and took over the account, it is virtually certain that you also saw Azuma Hazuki's condemnation of using her user name or similar names. Those comments were posted on September 20, 2020.

    Roughly an hour after that comment was posted, the Azuma Hazuki 2.0 account posted this: []

    The asshole who created this account wasn't lying when he gave the password, so I've appropriated it :) Reverse troll fuckers! If you don't want me using this account to moderate posts instead of posting AC just reply here.

    Nearly 24 hours after that, the Azuma Hazuki 2.0 account posted the following journal: []

    I just wanted to apologize for creating this troll account.

    It isn't a good idea or else this site will devolve into parody and stupidity the likes of which 4chan can only dream of.

    Be best everyone!

    Let's be clear about what's going on here. Azuma Hazuki 2.0 posted it's supposed password in response to Azuma Hazuki's criticism. An hour later, Azuma Hazuki 2.0 posted a comment saying the account has been "appropriated" for use in moderating comments. The next day, the account posts a comment admitting to being the creator of the Azuma Hazuki 2.0 account and apologized for creating the account. To summarize:

    1) You got called out by Azuma Hazuki and pretended to give the account away.
    2) You then claim the account has been "appropriated" to moderate comments.
    3) The next day, you apologize that you created the account.

    There is no way that you didn't see Azuma Hazuki's condemnation of the account, but you chose to use it anyway. If you were otherwise an AC and just wanted to moderate, you could have created your own account. You had no need at all to use the Azuma Hazuki 2.0 account, especially after Azuma Hazuki explicitly condemned the account.

    The account was never given away. You created the account, then pretended to walk everything back once you got called out by Azuma Hazuki and others. But you admitted that you were the creator of the account. From the beginning, Azuma Hazuki 2.0 complained about alleged admin abuses, exactly like you're doing now.

    It was your account. You created it. Azuma Hazuki 2.0 was always your account. If it wasn't, you wouldn't have admitted it was in a journal.

    Anger about the truth, not shocking. No false statements made, and hypotheses clearly separated from fact. SN users be warned, staff are incompetent or malicious, and for a supposed pro-privacy free speech platform they should at least be clear about the tracking being done. Only by repeated questions were the answers teased out, and every post pointing out the facts argued and downmodded.

    SN users beware.

    Your explanation is not plausible.

    Looks very plausible. Certainly more plausible than your paranoid delusion of a conspiracy to, well, do something other than make SN look really fucking stupid, which you have already done. Mission accomplished, game over.
