Problem: Subject \gaunt\ has seemingly evolved into something much more different than what it initially was, before one simply had to stay in a place witch would make you taller than it and \gaunt\ wouldn't know where you were, before all it had were crazed worshipers who saw it as a god and those whose minds it broke personally, groups of deranged men and women armed with nothing more than hatchets and butcher knifes. Now though... it has a complicated networks of killers, assassins, hackers, truckers, farmers, and everything in between to ensure its network is maintained, hell now a days it seems that \gaunt\ is some sort of mob boss than the eldritch abomination we all fear. Know it speaks directly to those who follow it, even those it stalks, making it seem, more human...
Theory: To understand this theory one must understand the Core Theory, at its core is the idea that all that is written or said about \gaunt\ effects it, to what degree though, depends on the origins "strength" that being a combination of how many followers they have, how respected the blogger/vlogger is, how many of their followers/viewers come to them for advice. The more of these they have the more likely it is that other people will begin seeing that own persons interpretation of \gaunt\, the more it will begin to act and react in the ways that particular person has seen \gaunt\. Sagel attempted to use this in such a way as to kill \gaunt\ and for a while it seemed like it would almost work... but it did not, it failed. But the idea in and of it's self, it still holds power. When I first heard about _masked_ blogs I wrote them off as false, they were obviously manufactured, it would be utter stupidity to tell people about there lives, to prone to the same mistakes as typical /visited/ bloggers i.e. telling about their whereabouts, giving people an idea of their plans etc. But know, as I read them, they are usually the first blogs that seem to mention \gaunt\'s increases in intelligence, they are the first to make mention of a network larger than just a few crazed cults. My theory is that _masked_ blogs were created not to garner sympathy, but to empower \gaunt\, to make it into the intelligent and cunning entity is now.
Explains: How subject has evolved over time
Issues with theory: Who started this, I don't think \gaunt\ was smart enough to think something like this at the time, someone else, one of his followers had to adapt the theory and corrupt it into the way it is used today. Possibly \dragon\? Who knows?
As always if anyone has any theories of their own or any issues, question, suggestions on how to better this theory then feel free to comment.
As always, stay as safe as possible fellow /visited/
