Rightly so. It's good to create.

Many years ago, on a now long-defunct forum elsewhere (no, not that one), I once started a thread with a load of sockpuppets arguing among themselves. People joined in and the thread took on a life of its own. I count this as one of my greatest ever achievements (the bar for that was never set particularly high).

Well, I thought it common knowledge that Regulator and Ian are the same poster.  The 'Regulator' persona only serving to show Ian (and inadvertantly the rest of the forum) in a good light.
