I'd heard of him, for whatever that's worth. You don't get that indignant and quit in a rage if you're innocent.

He used the nick "AlienLifeForm" on freenode, if that helps. I believe I spoke with him once or twice circa late 2006.

I looked at it, and saw nothing about Wiki alf.

However.... it apparently started with an argument that seems quite lame to me.
Ah, here it is....archived already. Why??
