Yourdon, Yourdon, Yourdon yet again? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I posted this as an answer a few minutes ago, but now it's a question. Between 5 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., I saw three separate answers purportedly by Ed Yourdon. I've been around here for several months, and I think I've seen two legitimate Yourdon posts or answers in that time. Another troll at work, I guess.

I've been chastised by a couple of devoted forum members for not spending enough time here, so I dropped by this evening and posted comments on a handful of threads ... obviously, a troll could be writing this, too, but would it really be worth the effort?

Are you sure? I sent a thank you message, and it wasn't bounced. Shhh, the boss is here... <:)=

It was him Vic, IMHO. Last time he posted that I remember was just before the U.N Y2K conference, which was back towards the end of last year.

Nice to see you around, Ed. Last time I recall your being here was to help us quell the troll-attack last month --- and for which we are appreciative. It's good to have you here on some of these more interesting and cogent threads. Hope all is well with you and yours.

When he's here, I value his comments. When he's not - no problem, though I have ssen nothing since Nov 1998 to indicate that the level of the problem will be les thatn forecasted early last year.
