There is someone under the name "papsosouid" [1] on this thread with an account that's "coincidentally" as old as the thread itself, and has only commented on this thread so far [2].

He seems pretty acquainted to this community (he was quick to show me the HN posting guidelines) therefor I suspect he must have another account at HN. I also suspect he has created this new account especially for posting in this thread: why would one do that? I cano only think of; (a) to conceal whom he really is, or (b) because he expects karma-negative results of his actions -- one not excluding the other.

It isn't a co-incidence, I registered specifically to post in this thread as it is relevant to my interests. I posted the posting guidelines as I just registered, so had just read them myself (they are conveniently linked under the little box you type words in). I am not sure whether I should be flattered or creeped out by your obsession with me, but I'll assume both.
