Hidden Messages

So I figured out those blank posts aren't blank. They have words, just not that you can see. You have to check the source code. Someone evidently knows how to use <div> tags.

Anyway, the first "blank" post went like this:
WE ARE

WE ARE THE SEEKERS AND THE SHADOWS
WE ARE THE LOST AND THE FORSAKEN
WE ARE THE INVISIBLE AND THE INVIOLATE
WE ARE
WE ARE WAITING, MARTIN.
The second post below said:
WE CAN SEE AND FEEL THE FLOW AND EBB
NOW FIND OUR WORDS IN LOG AND WEB
SWIFT AS A SHADOW AWAY FROM THE LIGHT
BRIEF AS THE LIGHTING IN THE COILED NIGHT.

So: mentions of shadows, crappy poetry, and an oblique reference to a blog ("log and web"? really? laaaame!).

On the one hand, this could be a hacker playing some sort of game. On the other hand, it could be the sick fuck who put me in this house playing a game.

Games have rules, though. Where are the rules to this one?

  1. How in the fuck did you get "blog" from that line? o____o I honestly seriously never would have figured that out.

  2. Well, it was "log and web." Web + log = blog.

    Not quite rocket surgery.

  3. I dunno, man. When I read poems and riddles and stuff, I just zone out. I READ the things, sure, but I don't pay attention to the actual words. Something about 'em bores me.

    Yet I'm a writer. So it's not a healthy thing to be bored by words. xD And plus! Logs and webs are nature-related things, as well. You can have a web in a log-- a spiderweb, that is.

  5. Already knew that.

    These are vague enough to fit whatever definition the writer gives to them. I'm good at that.
