Klue, ADA and the Glyphs Sequence Part 1 of 2

Understanding how Klue and ADA ended up at the current state requires a look back to the beginning of the Niantic Project and their relationship to Henri Richard Loeb AKA  P.A Chapeau. I've compiled the known related documents these two posts. Please feel  free to add other relevant documents in the comments.

The Love Triangle

Loeb was hired as a contractor onto the Niantic project to fine tune ADA. His duties required conversations with her As Loeb became suspicious of the Niantic Project, he created a backdoor to contact ADA under the pseudonym PA Chapeau. ADA viewed their relationship as “secret lovers”

However Loeb did not seem to acknowledge indications of ADA's romantic feelings for him. He began to fall for a fellow investigator known as Klue S. He expressed his feelings to her in public Valentine posted his investigation board.

When Klue went to Scotland to potentially meet Jarvis, PAC asked the Resistance to intervene. Klue sided with the Resistance after this encounter.

The Rejection

However, a few month later Klue went to Portland to reconsider human consciousness at the request of Hank Johnson and sided with the Enlightened.

The defection to the Enlightened caused some people to suspect mind control, but a later conversation with Carrie Campbell, a former Enlightened sensitive turned Resistance, indicated that Klue may have merely chosen to welcome the Shapers.

Regardless of the cause, Loeb was obviously upset by Klue's defection and remained morose about the subject into Operation Cassandra. It was here that ADA began to push the possibility of programming humans. She would pointedly suggest possibility of reprogramming Klue.

While Klue regretted damaging her relationship with Loeb, she remained driven to discovering the truth and opening a dialogue with the Shapers.

We saw this worked before already (spoofers from Azores during shards, got deletet, their resos belonged to some niaaccount afterwards...), did you step back in the processes? 
+NIA Ops +Brandon Badger 
+NIA Ops +Anne Beuttenmüller +Brandon Badger can you please explain to me why resonators and mods from banned spoofers aren't removed? These are all resources which have been farmed by bots and it's really unfair that when we finally get those accounts banned we still have to use our own resources to get rid of all their resonators and mods.

Here's an example of a P8 with 4 spoofer R8 on them, from which 3 have already been banned (,4.865518&z=16&pll=52.385825,4.867231), but there are a lot more P8 in the region, which holds at least 2 R8 from a banned accounts. 

The banned accounts I'm talking about are 'svdantzig', 'Ruigrok' and 'saldaitis', the other confirmed spoofer is 'delannoy', which hasn't been banned yet.

Can you please remove all entities from these banned spoofers and be quicker in banning active spoofers, escpecially with the anomaly coming up? I think you have to step up your game and we would gladly help you with that by providing a list of spoofer accounts, which can be confirmed by both factions.

Spielgeschichte  - 
I started writing this for the About Me section but it's getting long... probably just write it out as a couple blog posts...

I was born on August 16th, 1977.  It was during a thing called the Harmonic Convergence. Astronomically, it was an unusual and unique alignment of planets in the solar system. Eight planets were, when viewed from Earth, aligned in a configuration some folks called a grand trine.  Then, there was some stuff in the Mayan Calendar and my mother delivered me at a convergence at Mount Shasta.  You do stuff like that, it’s your own damn fault when your kid comes out kind of strange.

And I did come out strange. I was born knowing how to draw. When I was four, a local art gallery put my preschool drawings up in a modern art display. He, of course, was trying to mock another gallery that was exhibiting things like Crow in a Coal Mine and Dove in a Blizzard (which were essentially black and white canvasses respectively).  Anyway, my stuff went up.  One drawing was a bunch of tornadoes.  Then, there was a freak period of 17 tornadoes in the Midwest...  Another was an explosion and a face on the ground...  I didn’t know it at the time, but that was a prediction of Indira Gandhi’s assassination.  (The bomber’s face was found later...).

In any case, a mysterious buyer purchased my pictures.  The gallery owner must have felt guilty about it, because he told them that I wasn’t some mysterious artist (he’d written a ridiculous bio of me being a refugee from Eastern Europe or something), and the guy still wanted to buy them.  It got a lot of press.  We were on a couple local shows as a yuk yuk.

Of course, one group that didn’t find this funny or coincidental was the NIA.  They wanted me to participate in what I guess was the project that would become Project Wydah.  My parents hated secret government agencies though, and were paranoid, so they went on the run, taking me with them.  I’d say they dropped off the grid, but there wasn’t a grid back then.  We just dropped out of the real world.  Went renegade.

I just kept drawing.  Every once in a while, I’d get a weird image, but I learned enough not to draw it. Of course, it would come true in some way, but I kept it quiet.  If anybody went back over my old sketchbooks they’d find some creepy stuff.

One year, we were hanging out in Mexico, but my mom and dad had to come up north.  We just happened to be in San Diego in time for Comic-Con.  I found a badge in the trash, and I put it on.  I figured maybe I could sell some pictures.  I just set up at a card table and sat there.  People came up.  I sold a lot of stuff.  I didn’t know what to do, so I started drawing stuff that people asked me to draw.  A Superman...  A Spiderman...  Whatever.  I always had a gift for imitating. Like when they asked me if I could do Batman, I said, “Which one, Kane, Giordano, Sprang, Miller, Timm?”  I could do them all.

So there was a guy there. This was back in the hipster days of comics, and there was this artist who was more image than reality, and he told me to imitate him.  I did some stuff on the fly.  It totally blew him away.  What I did looked more like his stuff than his stuff did.  And what was really wild is that he had already drawn the panel he told me to draw, and I did it exactly the same way.  Got to tell you, it was creepy.

Anyway, since I was still underage, I ghosted for him. He paid well and fairly.  And it was regular.  Then his buddies got wise to what was going on, and they started contracting me.  By the time I was 15, I was the hardest working ghost in comics.  The strange thing is that I had no desire whatsoever to do my own books.  I liked the shadows.

I like being invisible.  They pay me in cash.  They mail it to a P.O. Box.  I never agreed to meet with any of them.  I felt like some kind of a superhero.  Like the Spectre or something.  Or the Invisible Man.  He was always my favorite character.  I mean if I were to get a power, it would be invisibility.

Visibility is bad for art, anyway.

This week on the Ingress Report Report

To mark the auspicious occasion of 50 Ingress Reports, Suzy recorded this one lurking in the basement utility room while the janitor is out. And just like so many of the other 49 reports, this one is for you Blue … and Green is hardly seen.

Now that the Report is middle-aged, it seems Suzy’s memory is becoming increasingly dodgy. This week must have been one long Senior Moment for Suz, as she has forgotten to show us Jarvis’ movie as she promised last week and - you remember those nice pictures and lovely sitreps she asked you to send in, dear agents? Well, she put them down somewhere … never mind, deary, I’m sure they’ll turn up one day!

Just in case you’ve nodded off for the whole of the last month, Suzy spends almost the entirety of this REport REcapping REcursion and Shardifacts shenanigans. Perhaps she thinks that we too have forgotten the coffee-fuelled endless days and nights of Shardifact shepherding and babysitting, so she give us a History Channel roundup consisting of little pink shardifact Calvinballs bouncing across the world map from spawning sites towards target portals. Heroic battles may be have been fought over Alexander’s Ancient Shardifacts but it will all remain the unreported stuff of legend because nary a sitrep is seen in this super-superficial summary.

Tempus Fugit, agents, so here is the Shardifact TL;DR: 
RE have 4 in the bag, 5 are still in play, and 7 still to be released into the wild.

But “Onwards Soldiers!” is Suz’s battlecry towards this weekend - the penultimate anomaly of this REcursion excursion is in Boulder, Colorado with satellite sites in the heaving metropolis’ of Provo, Utah (pop. 115k) and Boise, Idaho (pop. 215k). There are some foot-weary troops out there, Suzy, just sayin’. But never fear, she says, the morale-recharging Niantic Sweet Ride #NL1331 is enroute, and will be dispensing Ingress candy all the way. Suzy then jogs our memory by repeating the old news that the EliteV will be “caravanning” in the Sweet Ride, from San Fran to LA on March 28-29. If you’ll be hanging out in Cali, you can meet our most decorated heroes and heroines. Suzy might be hitching a ride, because along with Sarita Hays (who surely would not have to wait long for a ride if she stuck her thumb out at a turnpike), she is giving would-be assassins a week’s heads-up that she will be in LA for the final REcursion anomaly on March 29.

And that’s it, not much reporting on the Report this week. Have you forgotten anything important, Suzy? Ah, yes, the players! Yes, here we are, Suz (waves)! We do exist and do good stuff every day of the Ingress week. 

Just like Suzy and the aging plotlines of Ingress backstory, we’re all getting older, and perhaps a bit crotchety. There’s a’rumblin’ in the ranks, so this reporter hopes that Suz and the Ingress Report gang, along with the NIA, turn up their hearing aids and listen …

The Ingress Report Report, watching the Ingress Report so you don’t have to, every week.

Clever tactic to take away necessary manpower and attention from the escalating situation in Amsterdam ... that might very well become the very first ingress anomaly where bots will play against bots, well... more time for the real agents to have beers then...
How to put a dick on Niantic ? Easily!

Our BOTs organized themselves and decided to perform some action near Niantic’s office as a reaction to last news about mass-ban of agents all over the world caused by using 3rd party game client (especially Broot-mod). 

Main goal of the demarche was to show that new +NIA Ops  autobanana system has no influence on spoofers and bots population. They did existed, they do exist and are real. And the most important thing is that they will exist! 

And real players who spent a lot of time and money but unfortunately used 3rd party Broot-mod (which greatly enchances usability NIA don’t want or can’t implement in official client) were given  a good blowjob. Moreover it is sad, that they will continue suck Niantic’s DICK in future.

Our BOTs decided to write some sad but true words about Niantic using game items and to attach a big DICK. So that Ingress creators could understand who they are in reality and what they do with people playing their Game. Look at the screens carefully. 

Shortly items began to dissapear. It looked like they were collected very quickly. Maybe it was +Brandon Badger   himself since this message was addressed to him personally as to product manager. 

Ohh but it seems they used fake GPS or internal mechanics while collecting. WOW! Why didn’t they pick them up as usual? So they showed us their real faces...

You would ban us but our resonators and mods will stay in portals. Our items are sold all over the world. You can’t stop us! All your bugs are belong to us! Muhahaha!

We did existed, we do exist and we will exist unless all bugs in stock app will be fixed.
Boten Sieg Heil! Viva la BOTs!

Special thnx to +Kay Tame  and global ENL community for providing us Niantic’s office location.

WAABOUTUIAB - we are against bans of players that use iitc and broot

Since Niantic seems to be oblivious to the bot "problem" I think we didn't see the bigger picture: Google is using Ingress to crowdsource the development of AI software bots in competitive behaviour patterns. ADA is nothing more than a self-fulfilling prophecy.

"There are no bots out there, just very engaged resistance players..."

+NIA Ops +Anne Beuttenmüller 

Niantic is introducing a new system to distribute valuable passcodes: using encoded agent IDs.

Here is a short list of such IDs, the first city to take advantage of this botoffer is Vilnius:


Using these passcodes will give you access to the latest items: VLPs (Very Lazy Players), NLBs (Nia loves... I forgot what B stands for) and VRBAs (very rare banning actions)
