What the...?

Duclod Man Uncovered. Sarah Aswell uncovers (but does not name) the author of bizarre letters. "As early as 1992, students at Grinnell College, a small liberal arts school in Iowa, began receiving strange, anonymous letters in the mail. The letters contained homemade greeting cards with crudely drawn pictures—men crawling on the ground, toilets and trash cans, twin closet doors—and jokes that didn’t make any sense." (via Metafilter)
Creepy and disturbing, and a good bit of internet detective work. This guy (the Duclod guy, not the author of the article) sounds like a future Ted Kaczynski. Some of the commenters at Metafilter may have dug up some more dirt on our boy, such as an old online resume and photo.

Leave this alone, please. The man in question is autistic and harmless.

I really enjoyed Sarah's articles too, until I started examining them. I found no less than eleven factual problems with her article. Is "Richard" really as psychotic as he seems? What was Sarah's motivation? I've outlined my findings here: http://saveourskyline.livejournal.com/1127.htmlM
