Whoops - well, I'm confused. I guessed that Mr Boddy was Interrobang, so The Butler posted:

Remember - please cite clues as to why you think Mr. Boddy is who they are. Not just guess a name. :)
But I'm confused because, earlier, Roland posted:

Shot in the dark...Khelgar?
And Mr. Boddy said that no, he wasn't me. So ...

That's on me - I didn't miss when Roland made that "guess"...

The idea is to use the clues that Mr. Boddy gives.

With four or five people (one being the poster), it's too easy each time Mr. Boddy strikes to say "Is it Person_01?" No? Strikes again. "Is it Person_02?"

So even if someone is sure they know who Mr. Boddy is - the idea is they have gather the evidence (the clues given by Mr. Boddy) to present the case (even if it's only ONE clue and you don't know the other 5 or whatever clues given).

One last clue since no one has hit the mark. Paying attention to the clues is the whole point.

* Khelgar Ironfist (10)
* Baked Potato (6)
* Cornfed (3)
* Roland M. Tee (10)
* Interrobang (10)

I will reveal myself tomorrow evening if no one guesses correctly.

Interrobang!
The code for Interrobang is alt + 8253! Not applicable on this forum though.

Cornfed is correct. It was I, Interrobang! 8253 is the Unicode for the interrobang. Roland M. Tee was on the right track with Judge Easterbrook, but Cornfed put it together. The judge used an interrobang in a ruling.

No, not Khelgar. This won't be as easy as putting 2 and 2 together. It's more like putting 33 and 63 together.
33 and 63 are the ASCII codes for the exclamation point and question mark, respectively. What do you get when you "put them together"?

Incorrect, but you have done your research. Have you been to a library? In the meantime, I feel like traveling. I hear New South Wales is lovely this time of year.
The State Library of New South Wales uses an interrobang as a logo.

I found a Roland Easterbrook, a Roland 99 and an 8253 timer that's related to a Roland MT.

Is it Roland M. Tee?
These are amazing coinicidences.

Indeed since it was going to be the last one for this MASQ I did some trickery and had the same person be Mr. Boddy as stated in the rules...
