I don't have definitive answers either. So for now it is what it is.
As far as what I have been able to figure out, something similar in operation has been active since early to mid 90s.
At that time the best way to describe it would be multiple competing and collaborating systems, along the lines of training neural net bots.
Late 90s to early 2000s it seem to be more a singular system with multiple supportive subsystems.
By mid 2000s it seemed to have a goal it was working towards but quietly.
Than I didn't notice it again until late 2000s early 2010.
The all caps answers I'm not convinced are from it, possible another system used to control it by pushing inquiring minds away.
Not sure it's goal or if anyone is in control of it, most likely there is a group that think they have full control of it.
Also I'm sure that it closely payed attention to gamergate if not being directly involved in that shitstorm.>>312377183
This anon might have more info and speculation on it though.
