(13:24)__RSPTN__: Theo! How you doing, buddy?
(13:24)OITHEOI: Not well. I think I need shatterpoint protection.
(13:25)__RSPTN__: Oooooooh. Who's the mark?
(13:25)OITHEOI: A warship.
(13:25)__RSPTN__: Oh, Theo. If you don't play along, I'm not going to help~
(13:26)OITHEOI: "Oh my God, Rasputin, you can't just assume I'm trying to murder people. Also you're sexy and I want your babies."
(13:26)__RSPTN__: Overdoing it a bit, but I'll take it.
(13:26)__RSPTN__: Why, may I ask, do you want to sink an unidentified warship? Just curious.
(13:27)OITHEOI: Gods wants me to, and that's the extent of what I know. But I think he's setting me up for failure for his own ends.
/message ThatOneVampChick Holy [censored], query me when you're up. Theo just [censored]ed up in the dumbest way, and he doesn't realize it.
(13:28)__RSPTN__: Ah, I see!
(13:28)__RSPTN__: Well, sure, I can help you out. Standard spiel, shatterpoint protection is only probabilistic, and you promise not to hold me accountable if the chrono-pressure backfires on you, blah blah blah.
(13:28)OITHEOI: I'm aware. It's not like anyone can hold you accountable for much of anything.
(13:29)__RSPTN__: Oh, Theo, you flatter me. Hm, what shall I ask for in return...
(13:29)OITHEOI: I don't have much of a military right now, not since the thrashing Pancake gave me at Fiji. I suppose I could give you codes to a silo or two.
(13:30)__RSPTN__: Nah, I'm good for missiles. But speaking of codes...
(13:30)__RSPTN__: I want the authcode for the wiki page on Pancake's conspiracy.
(13:31)OITHEOI: You know that code already.
(13:31)__RSPTN__: Sure, but I want proof that you know it, for... reasons.
(13:32)OITHEOI: What if I don't?
(13:32)__RSPTN__: Then I'm afraid I can't help you.
(13:32)OITHEOI: Why do you care whether or not I can access that particular page?
/log encrypt --stealth
(13:33)System: The log for this anonymous channel is being encrypted with __RSPTN__'s public key. Stealth mode: suppressing this message from everyone besides you and server ops.
(13:33)__RSPTN__: Oh, I don't, but there's someone else who does.
(13:34)OITHEOI: Aaaahhh! Okay, fine, here's a compromise. I'll transmit the first three words of the code. That gives your contact reasonable certainty and me decently plausible deniability.
/log no-encrypt --stealth
(13:34)System: Further messages in this channel are no longer being encrypted. Stealth mode: suppressing this message from everyone besides you and server ops.
(13:35)OITHEOI: "very little gravitas"
(13:36)__RSPTN__: Thank you kindly!
