Hi Oliver,

Just in case you're not already aware, timecop/dongs/gnaa is a
"professional" troll. Unfortunately, he's latched onto the project --
he's building some ISDN usb devices and stealing code for them. Also
unfortunately, it seems, or would appear, that he and Marcus have become
kind of chummy (as evidenced on the irc channel on some occasions) --
Marcus is likely just being used for the sole purpose of obtaining
information (at least, that would be my guess).

In any regard, its best to just ignore him. He's just trying to get a
rise out of folks here.

If you are truly curious -- but I recommend that you do not waste your
time with it -- you may find more info about this troll on his gnaa.com
website (WARNING -- not suitable for opening at work or other places). I
believe there is a wikipedia or such article on gnaa too (Johannes found
it). Pure garbage this fellow.
