Part of the checking process involved actually getting in touch with the guy in question, so presumably there is no mischievous adolescent involved unless he is one himself.
That's why I suggested checking to see if his email had been changed between the time of his completely normal editing last year and adding existential questions to the top of the Main Page.

Yes. Perhaps that's one of the questions they asked him. Perhaps they asked him "Hey, Centrx, what's the chance that your email's been changed since last year and some mischievous adolescent hijacked and compromised your account? Eh? Go on, tell us!". Yep...... it's a mystery.
