I'm not sure the reason, but there seems to be this proclivity for people to try to figure out someone's identity. Why? This person, whoever they were, was obviously not Bruce (in my opinion). And, even if was Bruce, who cares? What difference does identity make? It only makes a difference for stalkers who generally want to stalk (or consider stalking), which I don't think includes you. If someone wants to hide their identity, they probably have good reason to do so, which means, in my mind, that we don't need to be trying.

Btw, your title "Did you say 'Uncle'?" implies to me that you want us to think this individual is crying Uncle, and that seems beneath you to make this implication. Please re-assure me that this is not what you meant.

Also, after being criticized for my 'warm regards' as being insincere (after chewing up the poster's argument), I decided to drop the nicety. I finally agreed that such niceties only come across as pretentious. Why add salt to a open wound. Just a little advice from your Uncle Harv.
