Full Handle: Ian the Admin
Ian the Admin is the founder and administrator of Alternatehistory.com. He is Canadian, and currently resides in New York City.
In AH.com Culture
Ian (PBUH) is the Creator, the Preserver and the Great Destroyer. The religions differ on this, but he denies His own divinity, clearly a display of His boundless humility. His denial of His own divinity is also the greatest proof of His divinity.
Plus he will ban your ass if he needs to (see also Hall of Infamy).
Plus Plus he has the Divine Right to Rule over the Forums granted by Himself.
Ian watches over all from his Orbital Control Platform.
Ian's catchphrase analogue while banning particularly obnoxious or crazy trolls is to simply precede his banning text with a stoic “Wow.”.
