The wiki page that Austin wrote, under the guise of the fictitious Gary Topov, say's that it started as a hoax in 2004, but now it isn't.
So, we can dismiss any of the history based on the perpetuator of the hoaxes own admission.
The next question would be: has the original hoax morphed into a real "game"
The answer to that question is NO. It is not a real game. It may be a simulated game, I'm not sure. I have logged on to this silly site to see the extent of the hoax.
Final question: are you Bowmann, a partipant in the hoax, someone who got duped themselves, or a combination of those three. Answer this question and I will talk to you more.
