I had discounted random workers (elves?) because several large-ish numbers had been factored (100+ digits) which the database won't do and for the elves to hit as many 100+ers in my sequence as they did would seem very rare. I hadn't considered a poacher, but that makes sense. It's saddening that somebody would do that if it was done intentionally.

Thank you both for your help.
