I just assumed someone on one of the lists would have been in phone contact
with JYA at some point or would have enough shared experience with him that
they could recognize him/the way he writes in an email.

Okay, I'll take the troll bait here...

How would you go about verifying that his account has NOT been hacked?

More evidence that the site has probably been compromised, yet again:

Excerpt from 2003 subpoena, via http://cryptome.org/cryptome-log.htm:

Hash SHA1




I, John Young, administrator of Cryptome, hereby declare that logs of
Cryptome are deleted daily, or more often during heavy traffic, to protect
the privacy of visitors to the site. Cryptome does not own or know the
location of the machine which hosts its virtual private server under a
service agreement with NTT Verio. There are several international mirrors
of the files on Cryptome, all of which, to the best of my knowledge, delete
logs to protect privacy of visitors.

Logs going back to 1996? That'd be perjury. I don't buy it.

Domain is not for sale at the registrar and transfer is still
prohibited. Fyi.
