Yes, theFinn is the original creator of phpBB and by extension, the original creator of this site, though it has since moved on of course, as he hasn't been active since 2009.

Which is sad. I would have loved to have seen him active and when this site had 60 registered users (or more) active at a given time.

He had a busy private life and thus decided that he was done with the product.

I'm at loss as to the point (or value) of this.
"This site" is not defined. Is it the current domain? the board?
TheFinn has user_id = 3
Anonymous normally has user_id = 1 (but is that a person? more like persons)
