debian-private leaker was right

Back in 2019, somebody who appears to be a Debian Developer leaked the first couple of years of debian-private, emails from 1996 and 1997. Traces of the leak linger in the debian-project archives. Replicas are hosted around the Internet, click for links.

What is really fascinating is the text the leaker has placed on every page of this HTML-formatted version of the archive:

The debian-private mailing list leak, part 1. Volunteers have complained about Blackmail. Lynchings. Character assassination. Defamation. Cyberbullying. Volunteers who gave many years of their lives are picked out at random for cruel social experiments. The former DPL's girlfriend Molly de Blanc is given volunteers to experiment on for her crazy talks. These volunteers never consented to be used like lab rats. We don't either. debian-private can no longer be a safe space for the cabal. Let these monsters have nowhere to hide. Volunteers are not disposable. We stand with the victims.

The leaker has named Molly de Blanc and described clearly the way she operates. In a leak from 24 December 2019, the leaker has predicted exactly what this toxic woman would do to Dr Richard Stallman in March and April 2021. Please join the call to have Molly de Blanc arrested for cyberstalking.

The original leak only includes 1996 and 1997 but the "part 1" title suggests more will come. More threads involving Dr Stallman appeared in 1998 and 1999.
