I'm sorry to report, Olivier, I've been down this road already. So have many others.
Jay does an absolutely obsessive job of covering up his personal identity, and hasn't slipped yet.
I don't count the IP addresses, because he's openly admitted to being in that part of Toronto.
We can only be sure
he's Hasidic Orthodox, probably a Lubavitcher, and does not edit on Jewish sabbaths.
And wound up in power at first as a nearly classic case of (how do I put this delicately?) Jews helping Jews on WP. Showed up as a newbie on WP in June 2004, feverishly editing topics Judaic, and immediately got into a pissing contest, as a new dog, with jdfwolff, who had issues with his editing of Ultra-Orthodox Judaism
(is the very term an insult?). After they'd fought the fight of who is more Jewish than thou, it being a draw, they sniffed rears and made up. Two months later, jdfwolff nominated Jayjg for admin, and a month later (3 months after first showing up on WP) Jayjg was an admin. That fast.
Not much later, Jayjg voted Ken! כן
in SlimVirgin's RfA and earned gushing thanks. Guess what kinds of articles THEY'D been working on. And thus cameth the Cabal of old. A story we've told here many times. Not too many Palestinians taken along, on that one.
