Tam: There IS a reason! Serenity is the former Hellcommute, only now w/o the commute and a new place to live. He has a new URL and therefore could sign up as a totally new person. He didn't change his avatar as a clue. He has always been a cool guy.
As to other people, there will always be a person or two to arrive just to rattle our cages. (GT8Super, anyone?) Some stay, still, but most leave shortly after they stop getting the agita they seek (or desperately need).
I think Nick's "Shut Up Already" thread needs to mention names.
A note on experts.
Most real experts on anything do NOT consider themselves as such, as they know there will always be someone else who knows more, well, at least until their mentors are dead.
It is the task of others to elevate one to the status of "expert," not one's self.
It's like "what you deserve." You may get everything you ever wanted in life, in spades even, but it will always be up to others to decide what you really deserve.

I don't know if God exits, but it'd be way better for His reputation if He didn't.
