Who the hell is Allan Corfield, why is he (or someone impersonating him) posting cryptic messages on Aunty’s site, and why are people searching for him in Google?

And who, or what, is “sule”?


Let me back up here.

On June 3rd, 2005, I wrote an article about Shagster, a place where you can register all of your sexual partner.

On the 4th of July, someone claiming to be Allan Corfield wrote an interesting comment, about research which was being “done in Sweden (of course) on something similar related to the spread of STDs and HIV”.

Then, on July 24th, another person (at least, from another, geograpically disparate IP address) claiming to be Allan Corfield wrote “take sule for example”, and the next day, that same person wrote “SULE will be with me soon!”

Now, I’m fairly certain that the Allan Corfield of the 4th is not the same Allan Corfield of the 24th and 25th.

Add to this the somewhat interesting tidbit that people (other than me) are searching Google on the name “Allan Corfield”, and, for me at least, it all adds up to one thing:

 

The question “Who the hell is Allan Corfield”?
Putting on her best sleuthing hat (and shoes), Aunty’s best guess is that (the real) Allan Corfield is someone in Australia (the Gordon area, to be precise, or perhaps nearby Tuggeranong), who has a background or skills in IT or programming, and is very knowledgeable about Windows. He’s well written, probably British or AU educated, has served some military time, and may have no more idea what “sule” means than do I. And he digs typists.

Oh, and by the way, Allan, if you’re reading this, Susan McMillen and Tom Armani are looking for you.
