You missed the joke SmitDogg...
It was a humorous way for the guy who had the 'only "known" roms in existence' to release them without having to worry about getting busted by Namco.
Some Hillbilly buys a cab that had a lost set of Crazy Otto in it, turned it on, and flipped when he thought someone messed up on a conversion, and sold the board to some unknown person on the net and bought a working Pac board. Buyer of rom board is anonymous and is never seen or heard from again, but he dumps his roms and releases them on the net. Perfect alibi for the guy with the original roms.
