Who is this strange new member - our 30,000th? And though there have been false accusations against me,

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=89349&page=7

I have it on good authority that we do have an imposter.

Could it be mattmns, rachmaninoff or Moonbear? How about Integral, z-component, or Tom? Maybe Greg... Or perhaps Zooby, Danger, or maybe even the return of Tribdog?

There is a mystery to be solved.

Ack, not the soft pillows! Anything but the comfy chair!

I'm too tired to stay up and continue playing around so I'll admit it: it's not me.

Eh? Now we're accusing me? If you look at the photograph mattmns took at 3:09 PM today:

...you can clearly see users "nabla" and "rachmaninoff" logged in at the same time. Whereas, user "Ivan Seeking" was logged off for those four minutes.

Or isn't it?

Actually, I'm pretty confident that Hurkyl is telling the truth.

Or am I?

We have contacted a Mr. Eddington from Scotland Yard to get to the bottom of this. I have it on good confidence that Mr. Eddington is one of the best. He has a nose for clues and a shiny new magnifying glass. It might be sooner or it might be later, but he'll get to the bottom of all this.

Or will he?

Maybe he won't after all. It wouldn't be the first time dastardly mystery fell through the cracks in the shadier nooks and crannies of Physics Forums.

Or would it?

One could easily coordinate such a deception. Obviously this person is very cunning.

Thank you rachmaninoff, for some reason Ivan keeps trying to take the heat off himself!

Mr. Eddington has passed along to me some top secret information that independently incriminates Ivan! With two converging lines of evidence, it seems likely that Ivan is the culprit.

Or does it?

Then again, this could all just be a red herring designed to throw us all off the trail of the real trickster.

Or could it?

I say we ban Pengwuino's IP. Anyone against the idea has something to lose, which makes them suspicious. In which case they should be banned also.

If Nabla was a genuine member, you've probably scared them off now :P

Oh, I believe Ivan is right that there's an imposter afoot. Will the real nabla please stand up?

(At least we've avoided a real new member from being scared off with a flood of PMs congratulating them on being the 30,000th member. :rofl:)
