Not to oversplit hairs, but how can it tie a claimant to an
organization? E.G.: The unabomer (note correct spelling) used the
personal plural frequently, but he was just one guy as far as is now
known. In other words: my point remains that in the general case "the
organization" might be one claimant.

Your description takes an organization as a given. All that is in
evidence from the described pattern is that there exists at least one
person who repeatedly uses the code phrase.
