In the log, a chatter identified as the real Topiary reveals a plan to try to recover from the doxing by pretending he doesn't know any Daniel Sandberg, and continue as he had before, and his frustration that the plan had not yet taken the heat off the real Topiary by getting the fake one arrested:
Topiary: if I go hide then people will assume the dox are right
Topiary : so I'll just act like they failed hard
[removed]: True that - so you need to make a big show of disproving them
Topiary: yeah well, this is my plan
Topiary also reveals he stole his current nickname from a British man he described only as "a troll," who turned the tables on Topiary by causing trouble online while claiming to be the LulzSec leader.
Topiary: I'll just keep denying it until they try to go after the troll
Topiary: then they'll think that's me and harass him
Topiary: I'm hoping someone will go after him and think it's me, then I'll act all scared etc
Topiary : just hoping that they'll take the bait
Topiary : the f***** has been using Topiary for like a year
Topiary : trolling everyone
Topiary : for no reason
Topiary : so now we troll him, hope he's getting raided
Topiary: well whatever, we both discussed this like last year
Topiary: then I'll stop my twitter and everything
Topiary: but it isn't F***** WORKING
[removed]: make it look like they got the right guy
[removed]: frame up this damn trollfaggot, and "carry on"
Topiary: hope it blows over and they start doxing Ireland [troll] or Scotland [troll] or wherever the f***UK part he's from
Topiary: anyway I trust you so yeah
Topiary: we can keep this between us
[removed]: Wont say a word bro
[removed]: just take care
Topiary: okay gotta go
Topiary: thanks for advic
