Who is the anonymous Andrew Gilligan commenter?

October 1, 2007

My Andrew Gilligan post attracted a couple of anonymous comments, apparently by the same author.

Who could the anonymous author be? Well online, nothing is really anonymous – now is it? Take a look at this screenshot for a moment while we play Internet detective…

[APOLOGIES – THE SCREENSHOT THAT WAS HERE HAS DISAPPEARED – 22.11.08]

So it’s someone who is:

  1. using an Associated Newspapers IP (publishers of the Evening Standard, Daily Mail etc.);
  2. online in the middle of the night – possibly entirely nocturnal;
  3. linking from a technorati search set up to track all blog postings on the name Andrew Gilligan.

Can anyone solve this conundrum?
