7. Nice work, Amy!

There seems to be a person or persons using Q as a pseudonym, in addition to Q being an abbreviation for Qanon.

Also, there may eventually need to set up a Qanon Anon - for cult members hoping to use the 12 Steps to kick their Q-ddiction


Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[20][21] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q" (or "QAnon", who was presumably an American individual;[22] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name.[23][24] A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods.[25][26] Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States.[27] NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and shortly thereafter spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon.[28] Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, including the United Kingdom and France since 2020,[29] with a "particularly strong and growing" movement in Germany and Japan.[30] Japanese QAnon adherents are also known as "JAnon" (Japanese: Jアノ?.[31]
