This was something I posted on the old board.

Back at some point between 2004-maybe 2006, I was looking at the wikipedia entry for AOHell. AOHell was part of AOHack, which were programs ("progz") that could be illegally added onto AOL years ago. People could also modify them by stealing code from other programs. I looked at this link in the entry, and it gave this list of different AOHack programs. I noticed that one of them called "AOBlaze" was made "(by Reb)." I had been deeply into researching columbine during that time period, so, when I saw that, I IMMEDIATELY thought that it could possibly be Eric, because the use of these "progz" were very prominent while he was still alive. I also thought this because I remembered the Time article about the supposed basement tapes excerpts, and I remember in the article they talk about Dylan and Eric discussing credit card fraud, and they said that Eric raises his hand in the video as if he were admitting to partaking in credit card fraud. Those types of "progz" could be used for such things. I'm sure he wasn't the first person to use the name "Reb", but back then, I doubt that many people were. Of course, I don't know if this was him by any means, but I found it interesting, and I've never seen anyone else discuss this (besides me on that old board).

Someone on the old board said that the description given in the article I am going to link sounds very similar to the level and type of programming that he would have used while making his Doom wads.

My knowledge and understanding of these types of things are very limited. But, again, I think it is more possible than not that it could have been him. It was not his real name, and he liked to make sure that somehow he was recognized for the things he worked on regarding computer programming. In his Doom wads, he would leave both his full real name and "Reb" all the time. He always wanted recognition.

This is a link that had the same article that was linked in the wikipedia entry back in 2004-2006.

And this is a photo I snipped from the above article where I highlighted the AOBlaze (by Reb) listing.

Does anyone have any understanding of these things? What do you think about this?

I don't know anything about Hacking and those progs, but he was into these sort of things, computers, hacking, and was definitely into AOL so I think there's a chance it could have been him

It is possible but I don't think we will ever know for sure
