"On Ray Peat and Danny Roddy"
#1
I just saw the following post from the creator of peatarian.com. Does anyone know anything about any of this?

"I made this forum in 2012 to better gauge the validity of Peat's work, and closed it 3 years later for a variety of reasons.

Around the same time (in 2015), I was hacked by a group of people. These were people who knew each other well ; Danny Roddy, Brad Abrahams (producer of the 'On the Back of a Tiger' documentary), Pranarupa (now 'Vashin Vetala'), Christina Ieronymakis, Karen McCary, etc.

They went in my computer and commented on about every aspect of my private life, even my own mother. The comments were never short of extremely vile, and the numerous attempts I made to make it stop were ignored. Roddy to this day keeps blaming me for their hacking.

I'm at loss, do not know what to do, have contacted police stations twice, reset my computer, but never managed to make them leave.

I have no clue why this is done, why theses people keep doing this, why I'm always followed everywhere I go (online). All I do know is that, as my forum closed, Roddy set up a Patreon, Brad Abrahams crowdfunded 80k for his documentary, 'Haidut' (supposed to be a slav analogue of 'Robin Hood) set up a supplement store, Karen McCary started coaching, Charles Mathers (who runs RayPeatForum) and his family set up another supplement store, etc. 

Many people call this community a cult, I would agree with that."

They said on facebook that it will be released at some point but they didn't know when.

When I read the post it reminded me of the following thread which discussed Charlie claiming his website was being hacked after which he installed software that severely violated the privacy of all active raypeatforum.com users. I wonder if Charlie was merely projecting.

I can believe a lot of this. Mainly i can believe charlie would do something like that.

Soon the "Ray Peat Community" needs a vegancheetah-type youtuber to report all the drama!

looks more serious than drama, if true

I don't know how to prove this is real, but all of it points to exactly that, and it is really scary to me.
It's those people I mentioned above, who seemed to have hacked into my computer (not saying one of them did the hacking, I think they just have a person that did it and who made them aware of that). As far as I can tell, they seem to have some kind of secret FB group or so where they discuss things, while they bully passive-aggressively in the background. So every time I ended up looking at their profiles back in the days, there was an odd overlap with my (private) life. I did not see such things when I visited unrelated people's profiles (let's say I follow some random people on twitter, there is no overlap - but I looked at their profiles and there would be a lot of overlap, sometimes to such an extreme extent I just couldn't look past it anymore and became quite paranoid). At first I thought it was coincidence - for a year or so. But it became so much that as time went on it became clear to me that not only could they read my e-mails, they also seemed to be able to spy on me through my computer. Last year I did tests, insulting them and seeing if they reacted, which indeed worked (the same insults I used were suddenly spouted out by them, always in passive-aggressive ways so there would be no direct proof).

You might have noticed weird behaviour. Take Pranarupa for example, who very suddenly closed down his blog and then reopened it partially, with a strange nickname (meaning 'vagina vampire'). His articles struck me as weird. The alliterations, for example. Back in 2013 I constantly wrote titles with alliterations in some private stuff I wrote down. When I saw him do it back in March 2015 it struck me as really strange. Not just the alliterations, but also the numerical symbology which I also used together with the alliterations. The majority of Facebook posts Pranarupa made in the past few years are easy to interpret. Usually seemed to be derogatory comments on my looks. I had some picture taken at me for the uni student card and I looked much older than usual, with very messy hair, kind of a dark tone. At the time many comments were made that seemed to overlap with this, such as comments on facial asymmetry and looking old. Pranarupa would put up pictures of monsters and the likes, usually in accordance with some unflattering picture that had been made of me.

You had Christina Ieronymakis who was key in understanding this. She contacted me out of nowhere in December 2014, which I now think was probably due to seeing me getting hacked. I ignored her but even a year later she contacted me again (she did so a few times in 2015, which to me seemed absurd since I simply did not answer to her). At the time I had been under the impression that Christina put videos on her public youtube profile that were meant to be interpreted. Though for a long while I thought it was probably my imagination. An obvious example is her calling me at the end of 2015, then putting a video on there with the title 'Final Call'. Her videos became so ridiculously interpretable, more and more so throughout the years, that she's probably one of the main reasons I believe I was hacked. Eg. I end up in the hospital, develop a scar after surgery, when back home I google how to heal scars betters, she puts this online :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZiJkicepzM
Or I do some shitty freelancer job which earns me very little during exam period, she posts this :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnpoK6BEDQc (can't find the exact vid, it was not live but it was that song)
Or I'm starting to think out loud I'm losing hair, and note down somewhere I need to fix my bike (my bike is red and they should know that since I bought it online relatively recently), she posts this (will comment on the use of French later on) :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUHZqVeqoXY
Or I call her swollen out loud because she kept commenting on my looks and she posts this :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G76SHa5IFnU
It's hard to explain but she seemed to refer a very great deal to my drawings I used to make back in 2013. She seems to think they were about her but it makes little sense.
Or I start whistling a whole lot, then :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD3RCwNseqQ
(she also posted another vid with a bird around the same time, it was a vid about a guy with a bird and a sick father and a jellyfish, this was right after I had a spat with my father and I mumbled in front of my computer something along the lines of 'he's sick', kept whistling, and called her a jellyfish out loud)
She presented herself as a Chinese woman (there was some post I looked at online presenting Japanese and Chinese people as almost polar opposites) a few times, eg. : https://soundcloud.com/kraejiyaeji
Or I post this vid online to parody her as she likes to do with me, then change my mind and take it away, and she posts this (notice the representation of me as Japanese and her as a cat again) :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNNv1znQbzQ
Or I look at French vids and she posts this (the French thing got weird as she never talked a single word of French but suddenly went all in there) :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCmnx-e928k
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWhR0RMcdfw
Or I subscribe to some Flemish pages and Christina subscribes to 'Flemish TV BE' and when I 'respond' disparagingly (hard to explain how, also by posting a youtube vid on my profile) she unsubscribes.
All of it seems way too shady to me, you'd have to be in my place to appreciate how much the content overlaps.

I'd be relieved if I was just imagining things, but there's so much material. Imagine something like this happen, not just the list I gave, but a 100 times and more in total (and that's only Christina). Before when I think the hacking happened there was *nothing*. You could look at her youtube channel in 2017 and all the interpretable things dated from *after* december 2014.
And now imagine that some other people related to the Ray Peat community had the same thing going on on their profiles, so the evidence piled on.

Some guy I used to talk to sent me some vid, which seemed like yet another derogatory comment on my looks. I deleted the e-mail. Shortly after he re-sent it. Similar (short) e-mail, same vid. I proceeded to ridicule some of his personal issues after which he told me I have no empathy and should visit a doctor, and left. I never heard of him again, but the experience was awfully strange. That same guy would ask me strange questions that seemed to come out of nowhere, but that I later on understood were in accordance with my private life (at the time I didn't consider it a possibility). He had not been like that in 2014 or before that, though I fairly regularly talked to him.

Not just the content but the timing was usually in exact accordance with things happening in my private life. What's more, when I moved out of the house and bought a new computer, virtually all of the profiles that had once been interpretable weren't anymore. Notice for example how in all those months, Pranarupa did not say a single word. Many of them completely stopped posting online, they haven't posted anything since, say, September (I closed off most channels of communication for most of the time since mid-August - eg. moving away, turning of my parents's network when they're on holiday, ...).

I'm not sure how I can defend myself, and it is easy for them to faint ignorance and claim I have some mental disorder. Case in point, I was already told I might have apophenia. That was Brad Abrahams btw, who was a member of Peatarian but changed his nickname (in 2015 I think). An example of an overlap with Brad's profile is how I'd note down somewhere about problems with human touch when I was younger, then shortly after Danny Roddy sharing studies on exactly that subject while Brad Abrahams shares this :

All of these people do their utmost best to present themselves as kind but don't seem to be able to actually put it in practice.

It really sucks what you went through. There are definitely a lot of really hypothyroid people in the community that either never had the empathetic part of their brain develop, or don't have enough energy to properly access it in their current states. It's unfortunate because these types of people need the most help from forums and such, yet cause the most damage to them.

Install some basic security software if you havn't already. There are a lot of really good free firewalls and malware/virus scanners out there.

To be clear I may have a psychiatric disorder (the idea was that I might have schizophrenia, because of the possibility of all this being a bunch of delusions). Aside from this story no other aspects of my life point to an obvious need for psychiatric treatment. I have (petty) issues but they do not stand in anybody's way except my own. I went to psychiatry for a while since July last year before posting anything online. The prescribed medication - olanzapine - did not 'pop delusions' and made me very sleepy. Maybe re-doing the treatment or even finding alternative meds or approaches would help, but I can't afford sleeping 12 hours a day right now or putting too much money into this.

I am not claiming any of the aforementioned people did any hacking, I was under the impression some other person unbeknownst to me did it and made them aware of it. It's perfectly fine to me for any of you to assume this to be nothing more than a psychotic streak of mine.

As for security, thanks for the advice. I have not seen an overlap with my private life since buying a new computer and moving to an other place. Assuring this is pretty much my only concern right now.
