Hi,
Mac OS forum shows that thread "Xcode 4 isn't free for unregistered developers" last poster is Bear Bibeault. But when viewing the thread, Ulf Dittmer is the last contributor actually.
This phenomenon occurred multiple times here.
FYKI.

This is a known bug that has already been reported here in the Ranch Office forum. It is on the list for bugs to fix.

I reckon Bear has 40k+ posts but directly altering posts in the db and screwing up the site.
