(CLed from last string. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. Oh, well, I could do a lot worse than following in her revered footsteps.)

How horrible! Imagine what would happen here if the identity of our site owner/operator were to be publicly revealed! Oh. Wait.

QAnon Website Shuts Down After N.J. Man Identified as Operator

(Bloomberg) — A popular website for posts about the conspiracy group QAnon abruptly shut down after a fact-checking group identified the developer as a New Jersey man.

Qmap.pub is among the largest websites promoting the QAnon conspiracy, with over 10 million visitors in July, according to web analytics firm SimilarWeb Ltd., and served as the primary archive of QAnon’s posts. The website aggregates posts by Q, the anonymous figure behind the QAnon theory, and the creator of the Qmap.pub website is known online only as “QAppAnon.”

The fact-checking site logically.ai identified Jason Gelinas of New Jersey on Sept. 10 as the “developer and mouthpiece” for the site. New Jersey state records connect QAppAnon to Gelinas’s home address, Bloomberg found.

Gelinas is, or was, an information security analyst at Citigroup.
