How sure is it that each encounter with the AI is actually with the AI, and not somebody imitating it?

I know there are already a few fake accounts popping up on forums.

That is part of our purpose... to help separate the real from the hoax.

In particular, I'm talking about the XBL conversation... the speech tendencies and mannerisms were slightly off from the Bungie and HBO ones.

I'm leaning on the side of caution with this one. AR said he would be communicating using B.net, and we have no cause to believe he is using any other source. There have already been several disproved hoaxes.

Yeah the XBL thing might be bogus. If you've read any of the Halo novels and stuff like that you know how the AI's in Halo usually communicate and certain words like "XBL" just don't fit their vocabulary.

AdjutantReflex clearly stated that he's remaining on Bungie.net, so the XBL, AIM, MSN, and other conversations are all faked, either by the submitter or the person on the other end impersonating the AI.

Mildly off-topic, but I would ask all of you to remember one key thing about Alternate Reality Games. They take place in our time. I noticed on many of the other forums (and man, is it getting chaotic), that people keep asking the AI, or saying things to the AI that have to do with the game series itself, such as Cortana, Master Chief, and other events that haven't happened before the year 2007. Why is the AI here, in our time? Well, obviously it's Forerunner, so it is around, but why is contacting us? Well, that's the game, isn't it? ;)

More on-topic; Alternate Reality Games, just like I Love Bees had started, start out slow, and weed out all the players who won't really get interested, or spread the word in just the right manner. From the start, they're small, then they get bigger. I'm sure we'll get the AI speaking from more sources, but until we find any otherwise, he's staying on Bungie.net.

(Also, Lyca.com and the other websites related that are going around aren't affilliated. It seems to be a silly belief all about Bungie.net right now.)

They would definately be more inclined to call it something official instead of the acronym.

Thank you for the clarification Zag.

I take it that means mailto:adjutant_reflex@hotmail.com is probably a fake??

Altho, his mannersisms seem appropriate, and he has none of the blatant spelling errors in his text. The ony thing that concerns me is that his handle/username is Adjutant Refflex's Ark Mainframe, and AR hasn't yet said he has anything to do with the Ark (at least not officially on Bungie.net)....has he?

Exactly, that's what's worrying me about it. It's far too soon into the game for him to be saying things like that.

Monitors tend to have extremely advanced vocabulary, and usually with things like that they don't use acronyms like "XBL". They speak in the literary proper.
