    If you "Scroll Down" to the bottom of that page, https://www.findaforum.net/sciforums-com.aspx youwill find :
    " http://sciforums.com/ added to FindAForum 14 October 2013 (Forum #468). Entry last modified 11 March 2014."
    That "name" you speak of, DaveC426913, had already been "made" more than 6 years ago, it would seem...

    Well then, my mistake. I did not realize that the " Entry last modified 11 March 2014. " did NOT include what you were "just talkin' about".
    Again, my mistake.

    I had long assumed JamesR was the owner of sci forums. lol

    Does anyone know if the owner has ever stopped in to post?

    James R et al are the human ambassadors who liaise with the owners, whose form is only told in legends now lost in history. They are reputed to be shadowy, wraithlike creatures of the lower Illuminati, who only make their wishes known every 300 years. The only known form of communication is via the interpretation of geometrical scrimshaw-like markings found on the shells of the freshly-laid eggs if Gila Monsters in New Guinea.

    They have not been heard from in an unusually long period of epicycles, and there is some speculation as to the cause - from the simplest conjecture that James R et al have lost the ability to divine the meaning of the scrimshaw missives, to the rather bold conjecture that the owners have returned to the dimension from whence they came, leaving us to chart our own destiny. No one knows when - or if - they will return.

    James R will confirm all this.

    To the one, the owners are very intelligent beings. To the other, they have a warped sense of humor, y'know?

    As Xenophanes of Colophon pointed out, to wit, "One god greatest among gods and men,
    not at all like mortals in body or in thought." 1

    The owners may indeed be the Gods of which we so frequently speak, nay, it's most certain that they are the Gods.

    These great souls, polymaths, all, long chain polymer if you will in terms of intellect. I'm reminded of a anime I watched recently when my mom was out of the house. It emanated a God-like aura 'twist my two ears. To the one I almost though it was God. To the other. lest I shall be thought of as crazy, it was just a remarkable anime.

    Dylan, not of the Bob variety but of course I'm speaking of Thomas, " "Do not go gentle into that good night" and whether one shall or shall not go and without necessarily characterizing the night as good or evil it begs the question as to whether or not we can really go anywhere as everywhere has already been "gone".

    I've a feeling Plasma Infernol is involved somehow, too, possibly as the intermediary, or pontifex maximus, for communicating with these shadowy entities - OK, mice.

    Ah yes, Plasma Inferno was there at the beginning. I think it was he who found the first egg and worked out the language.
    He may have even clapped eyes on some of the owners, but oh what a terrible price did he pay. I do not envy him.

    Some say he took the boat Westward to the Undying Lands. PI's tale is one of the earliest chapters in the Scimarillion.

    I've thought this too. Well, not the shadowy entities, but Dave has me rethinking all the possibilities.

    It seems its origin is with a company called Lifeform inc. England.
    It seems a company called Lifeform inc has something to do with the site.
