Default the terrible Truth of Democracy - by Tau-killer

Part 1 - the Rise of Democracy

Somewhere in Swansea, a 15 year old boy is hunched over his computer.* Suddenly, he notices something - he has a message.....

However, that's not too important right now.* I'm worried.* I think this DeathWatch person will be back somehow.* However, I don't think he's working for a specific company.* As far as i know our superiors are still there, normal as ever.* I think he's working for a single person following their own agenda.* that scares me.* We must fight the coming darkness of democracy, otherwise Tau-Online will fall…
Who is Deathwatch working for if anyone?
How exactly did Rjay hack into the forum and how does he seem to know so much?
What does KJ’s emotional instability have to do with anything?
To be continued in: Part 2 – the Reign of Democracy – coming soon to an enclave near you.

There was/is actually a member called DeathWatch but he only made one post way back in September and has never been back since - and I needed someone to make the quotes from - short of setting up multiple accounts!* I also liked the name.
