30 Years a Member and No Screen Name?

In the GQ thread about the origins of the Christian Trinity http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=38013 – please note the post at 9:51 AM on 9/11/2000, just before Dex’s post.

According to the information on my screen, there is no poster name, this unidentified entity has been a member since 1969, and has no number of posts.

Sounds like a hack to my uneducated eyes.

Polycarp: this is being discussed here in this forum as The ghost poster.

If he was on the web 30 years ago, maybe it was Al Gore.

That would also explain the blank name: he was an Unknown then.

Ahhhh, humor at the expense of a political figure, with a healthy dose of Urban Legend.
How refreshing.
