    $\begingroup$ I downvoted this because I don't like how it's already part of another question. You're splitting one question/riddle into multiple questions. $\endgroup$ – Ric Nov 19 '14 at 23:37
  • $\begingroup$ @Ric AE is doing it... $\endgroup$ – QuyNguyen2013 Nov 19 '14 at 23:58
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah. I don't like that either. I guess we have a problem in that this behavior hasn't been defined as OK or not in this board. It's an odd/new situation that doesn't really apply anywhere else on SE. I'm going to take back my downvote and try to bring it up on the meta sometime soon. $\endgroup$ – Ric Nov 20 '14 at 0:08

    $\begingroup$ I downvoted because this is one of those mass-producible puzzles I was talking about. $\endgroup$ – Joe Z. Nov 20 '14 at 1:25

Answer is:

DIGITAL ROOT OF SOMETHING.

Explanation: we are all given

a name

at birth, so the secret key is

your profile's name, namely 'QUYNGUYEN'.

Shove this into a Vigenere decoder, with the given ciphertext, and the answer comes out as stated.
