It could happen

It *has* happened !
According to his home node, mpersico joined PM on 20th May 2000, provided (at some stage) a brief bio, and then waited until today to make his first post.

Seems unlikely to me ... especially given that I'm sure I've seen that username on previous occasions. (But I could be wrong, too.)

UPDATE: Maybe it's just that I've seen his name on some other forum ...

      I think some monks (perhaps vroom or NodeReaper) have been recruiting for years a silent army of sockpuppets ready to spring when the cry to battle comes. 0 writeups, registered years ago, last seen < 1 month are the most interesting.

        That would be the zombie apocalypse, then.

      Some people are shy. Or maybe they found all they needed by searching or via Chatterbox discussion.

      Update: This old node may be of interest: On Two Years of Silence....

      Enoch was right!
      Enjoy the last years of Rome.
