    Ok based on the evidence he is very likely to be the founder however there is no concrete proof (Besides that slip of the tongue). He is a man who lives and enjoys his solitude, with people bothering him constantly of course hes going to try to get them off his back.

    I think everyone should leave the guy alone.

    As GhostRyder concluded, the man should just be left alone.

    A free lunch, what an opportunist. Most likely he'd never heard about Bitcoins until someone mistakenly identified him as the founder.
    Anyway I hope we don't have to read about this clown in every second article like we did Edward Snowden.

    Ha this guy is the bitcoin founder look how they figured it out:
    Step 1. Pick random guy.
    Step 2. Turn Random Guy into Said Bitcoin Founder.
    Step 3. Post it on your website and let others understand THIS is the bitcoin founder your looking for.
    Step 4. Sit back and watch some useless slob be made famous thanks to your help.
    Step 5. Watch him go "WTF" When he sees himself on your website and everyone thinks he is DA MAN.
    Step 6. Earn Shirrions of AD Revenue.
