Oops! As you see from the screen capture, an E-Infinity group member inadvertently posted the email addresses of the members of that shadowy brotherhood.
The FQXi admin took down the accidentally posted email addresses, locking the barn door after the horses got out.
THE MEMBERS OF THE SHADOWY "E-INFINITY GROUP" UNMASKED

It would be great if readers can help with the missing photographs.

Presumably what happened is this: The person writing under the pseudonym "E-infinity", who posts voluminously on FQXi, got confused about what was in the copy/paste clipboard, and he or she was in a hurry. They meant to post article number 12, but instead posted an email recipient list of people meant to be CC'd on that post. This suggests that we know the identities of all the members of E-infinity group except one -- the primary author of the tl;dr E-infinity screeds, and sender of the emails.
UPDATE July 19, 2010: The sender and primary author is Mohammed of the The Golden Mean in Quantum Mechanics and High Energy Physics blog.
