- Relevant part:
- "When my competitive pokemon career inaugurated, I was on the Smogon University server of Pokemon Online in September of 2011. There was a rule known as COPPA. Essentially, COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) prohibited users under the age of thirteen (who are classified as children) from having freedom on the internet.
- In real life, I’m a 15 year old now. I was 12 years and 11 months old at the time I joined smogon, but they banned rule-breakers for a year minimum, according to a server moderator in their main chat. So, I was kinda forced to using the story that I was ten years older than I actually was.
- After some time passed, this story stuck with me as the people I talked to on the server such as Ripamon and CasedVictory all thought I was in my twenties. I claimed to be at Rutgers, studying to be an accountant. I made up all kinds of stories, lies, and a somewhat realistic sounding, but fabricated life."
