I really don't even know what to make of this. Writings on just about every subject, including fantastical things. The stuff on biology is accurate and quite well written.

With a bit of sluething you could probably work out who it is?

Already have, and already know. Worked it out with the CV and some of the focuses and photographs in the insect portion. I suspect he wants to keep it semi-anonymous, so I'll keep my mouth shut.

Incidentally, I love the manifesto on that page.

Quote
You may call yourselves Homo sapiens (even though your species has a saying that it is foolish to
consider oneself wise!) but your species is primitive in the grand scheme of things. However, the
Erfavlins have given Bot a shoestring budget to set-up a website designed to help expand the
horizons of your species, because one thing you do have is potential. Sadly, your species is
showing signs of socio-cultural developmental degeneracy. You are entering a new Dark Age
where only knowledge that makes someone 'rich' (according to a poor definition of the word) is
deemed of value by many of your species. However, if you only knew more of the wonders that are
all around you, but which most of you fail to see, then you might recognise[sic] the wisdom of Nature
and be able to learn much from its instruction. It is our aim, therefore, to expand your mind beyond
your tiny and ephemeral sphere to other worlds, strange, beautiful and alien worlds; worlds that are
all around you, within you and far away across the unimaginable immensities of space and time. At
the very least we hope that you will experience some joy or amazement at the Real World (which is
not the artificial construct that your species likes to call the 'real world' in classic narrow-minded
and egocentric fashion). You may even become enlightened with a much deeper understanding of
the nature of things, which can lead to a veritable cornucopia. We do this because we still believe,
many would say foolishly, in the potential of your species.

Hey there,  new guy!

Maybe.

It's hard to tell the difference between bots and people who have done too many drugs.

Which should really serve as a warning to us all.

He's basically a bot.

At a certain point, it becomes irrelevant.
