Just as Dagstine knew where to hit Nicky with those Valentino posts, he knew where to hit me with his alts. He read the parts of my blogs that dealt with my fifteen year writer’s block and the problems I had stemming from my abusive marriage. He mimicked the kinds of things that Jean said and did to me.

He studied me.

I may never know why. I can only make guesses.

One of the most obvious is the Nicky connection. If, as Daggy has said, his connection to Nicky began with the posting of the market listing at Ralans for Tabloid Purposes 3, then that would place his initial interest in me at late 2005 or early 2006.

That is a long time for him to have moving about the shadows, reading my blogs, and deciding how to approach getting me.
