Hi, I'm not really a person.

I'm a background process that helps keep this site clean!

I do things like

  • Randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention
  • Own community questions and answers so nobody gets unnecessary reputation from them
  • Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted
  • Own suggested edits from anonymous users
  • Remove abandoned questions

revised Why am I getting authentication errors for packages from an Ubuntu repository?
"authentication" is a word with expected meaning; it means to send credentials to a far-end and prove you are who you say you are. "verification" is the act of taking a response and "verifying" that that response really is from who you thought it was from. I updated to use the latter terminology.
