Proxymorons is about two identical individuals, known only by their usernames: Proxymorons and AlertN_Afrayed. The latter claims the former is antagonizing him, and threatening to steal his identity. Proxymorons claims that he and AlertN_Afrayed are the same person, and that he is running an ARG through the content released on the two accounts; AlertN_Afrayed argues he is using this as a cover.
