I know who Nagel-Angel is, and Nagel-Angel knows me. Neither of us knew Pat personally, nor did we work for Mirage. However, we do know some of the people who knew both.
And yes, we are both obsessed collectors!
Lefora prefers the avatar approach to forums. The anonymity is kind of fun. I see it like a giant masquerade party where people can kind of guess who is who, but not everyone knows for sure. Of course, removing the masks takes some of the joy away, so I have been happy keeping the mask on and enjoying the speculation.
