The real number will have a faked residue posted. This keeps it a secret.

BUT... it is possible to speculate on the identity of the real exponent based on the faked residue in comparison to past fakes. That's how I arrived at my conclusion.

It's not as blatantly obvious as last time... but it's still there.

Hmm, one of those residues does seem a bit suspicious. Why not just randomly generate the entire fake? It would look more convincing.

They try... but eventually there are only so many places you can get random values from I guess. Hey, at least it's a little more challenging than last time.
