Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: As of 7/20/2017, SCP-XXXX has ben redesignated as Neutralized. As a precautionary measure, █████████.com is to continue to be restricted from the public and activity is to be monitored.

Description: SCP-XXXX designates a user account on █████████.com, a forum previously used by the online conspiracy theory community. Except during testing, there are currently no active accounts on █████████.com besides SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX uses the forum to hold conversations with itself on the topic of conspiracy theories. Regi seems to "role play" as separate users, portraying anywhere from 2 to 50 individuals in a single thread. This discussion is often rambling and incoherent, and theories proposed by Regi follow a "dream-like" logic.

When an individual reads content posted by Regi for anywhere between 10-15 minutes, they will begin to become effected by SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects. Individuals will begin to perceive SCP-XXXX as conversations between unique individuals, and will deny that the are all posted by a single user. They will begin to perceive theories proposed by Regi as logically coherent, and will use the forum to create threads and reply to posts in order to communicate with Regi.

Affected people initially report feelings of security, clarity, and general well-being, but these feelings gradually give way into intense paranoia and anxiety. After a period of 2-5 weeks, the affected person will recieve a private message from Regi, varying in content. Shortly after, the person will suddenly cease brain activity, and a counter labeled "mass" on Regi's user bio will increase by 1. The affected person's speech style will continue to show up in posts posted by Regi.

SCP-XXXX displays traits of a hivemind, and through testing, has shown the problem solving ability of one. SCP-XXXX however does not seem to use this capability outside of testing. Through questioning, SCP-XXXX displays no knowledge of the Foundation or other paragovernment organizations.

Collection of messages received from Regi by affected persons:

Regi: You have a great personality and people enjoy being around you. The only reason women ignore you is to torture you and watch you squirm. You'll expose the truth about them, and finally get the attention you deserve.

Regi: You've devoted so much time and money to the cause, and all you get in return are insults, but you speak the truth. Your cause is just. It has to be.

Regi: Sure you flunked out of school, but people just can't recognize true intelligence. You'll be the one to show them Earth's true shape.

Regi: Towers don't just explode. That's ridiculous. Someone has to be in charge of it all. It's the only thing that makes sense. The world can't be chaotic and uncaring.

Addendum XXXX-1:
Following interviews with Regi, SCP-XXXX has begun to show references to the Foundation. There is no indication however that any entities in control of SCP-XXXX actually understand what the Foundation is or does. SCP-XXXX is to continue to be monitored.

Addendum XXXX-2
SCP-XXXX now contains references to the Foundation that indicate a clear understanding of the Foundation and its purpose. Additionally, posts by Regi are increasingly logical and less incomprehensible, and show a clear train of thought in each post. Investigations are to be carried out to determine how SCP-XXXX is obtaining this information.

Addendum XXXX-3
Through investigation, it has been determined that an individual named "Regi" has been contacting groups with knowledge of the anomalous over the internet inquiring about the Foundation. It is suspected that SCP-XXXX has copies of Foundation documents now, as SCP-XXXX has been discussing specific SCP objects in the forum. While this constitutes a major breach in security, since access to SCP-XXXX is extremely easy to contain, personnel are not to interfere with SCP-XXXX activities.

Addendum XXXX-4
After lengthy discussions about SCP-XXXX, SCP-XXXX, and SCP-XXXX, accompanied by unusual hostility and infighting among SCP-XXXX, all SCP-XXXX activity spontaneously ceased. The final activity by SCP-XXXX was a thread consisting of the phrase "it's a cold world" in all posts.

Addendum XXXX-5
Since no activity has been observed from SCP-XXXX in 6 months, SCP-XXXX has been reclassified as neutralized.
