>>11935>Who allocated time to give birth to this image?>What actions did he commit to warrant hiding behind seven proxies?
He was a child porn spammer, I forget what he called himself. "Master" something IIRC.>Who exactly is the subject talking to?
Mods>Why is the subject wearing dress attire?
That's getting into some really obscure chan culture shit, something from 711chan which goes back even further to Bob from the church of the subgenius. Stuff like that just carries through with memes, which is why Anon, green guy, red guy and grey guy wears suit attire today.>Why did he choose to use seven proxies instead of, say, six?>Why did he use proxies instead of other methods of anonymity?
He used the Tor network, supposedly it really was that many nodes, I don't know if true.>Why did he refer to his location relative to the proxies as "behind"?
That's just basic terminology.>Is the capitalization of all the text a method for conveying the fact that he is yelling?
I would assume so, unless he was just retarded.>How did this particular image gain popularity and root itself into the minds of the viewers?
12chan really. It eventually makes it's way to 4chan from users who saved the image and reused it on 4chan out of context. People who didn't know the origin kept using it and so it goes.>All the questions that will most likely remain unanswered.
Sorry to say I know something this useless and sad. Someone might know better than I do.
