>Immediately prior to his suicide, Gribyedov uploaded his 25,000 word manifesto and an additional 140,000 words--comprising two complete novels and several volumes of original poetry--to a text hosting website that he believed would archive them in perpetuity. However, automatic moderation bots identified objectionable words in the files, restricted them, and ultimately deleted them entirely. According to Gribyedov's best friend and self-appointed literary executor, the site's actions destroyed the young author's life's work permanently, as he was carrying his laptop when he drowned himself. The size, file names, and file size of the documents are the only information that can be scraped from his upload, which was located based a link provided in his hand written last letter.
