HU12 is a postal code in the UK for Hull, a city which is a shipping and trading hub in the U.K..
I can see that there are many big banks and shipping companies with establishments there. This doesn't even mean that Wikipedia's "Hu12" is in the UK. Probably Hu12 worked in London (or maybe around Hull HU12), for some financial institution, just like people from the other possible 190 different nationalities. HU12 is a postal code for the "The City" part of London, where all the banking and financial stuff goes. The name use is nostaligic. Probably he moved back to his home country (probably the U.S.) is using the old post code. A Brit wouldn't use a British post code for an ID (well, one U.K. government official did that, and it was foolish, as he got desysopped and accused of sockpuppetry, but don't get me started
). Anyways, Hu12 is American.Banks and trading companies

Hmmm, someone who worked in trading, ifinance, in the UK... hmmmmmmm.... not English......Ok - know who I think it is? Pardon my Durova-like theorizing. Our own lovely self-absorbed, TMI, media-chasing Durova clone DAVID SHANKBONE.
Who is David Shankbone?
The first thing you should know about me is I’m like nobody else you’ve ever met. My blood is the only connection between George Bernard Shaw and Jane Bowles. I'm a silly bastard, true of heart and I want the best for those in my life. I do not compete with friends or family. I've driven a motorcycle across Cuba, been a paparazzo in New York, worked at Enron in London, skydived over Italy and camped in the Amazon basin for a week to get over an intense fear of insects; it didn't work. I saw death on that trip. It's not the first time: I found a suicide in the woods on New Year's when I was 13 (a boy my age named Mike Drinkwater). By serendipity I found out why he did it. I live in the East Village y hablo Español. I have a scar on my face and a tattoo on my shoulder. David Bowie and The Libertines are all-time faves (I'm always rooting for Pete Doherty to pull through). In the fourth grade the nuns at my Catholic school told my mother in a parent-teacher conference I wanted them dead. I did not. I'm a big guy (6'3), athletic (185#), slim (32W x 34L) and pale (25% Irish/25% Dutch/50% German). I'm glad I'm getting older (wiser) and I disdain youth. I wear a suit to the office where I manage the assets of two of the founding families of New York City. I've moved 33 times amongst 3 countries (US, GB and ES), 6 states (NJ, GA, CO, TX, PA, NY) and 17 cities. Airline family, not military. Then it was me. Everything before NYC is forgotten. I like to travel off the beaten path. Happy endings never bore me.
Currently in jpost.com, being called by the Israeli press "our editor in Wikipedia" (grimace). He is writing for Wikinews, and who proudly brags for having worked for Enron, which any sane ethical person would never do. Enron had an establishment in Hull Hu12, before it tanked from all that CORRUPTION
(cough, cough). Shankbone worked for Enron U.K.
That's my guess.
Because most people don't give a hoot about Durova this week. Hu12 is too much like her to let her drop. So would be David Shankbone - and how wise of him not to be an asshat-ty administrator in his own name. That's one better than Durova. I'll give him that.
