Possibly because that user has never posted anything that makes any sense.

My theory is that some spambot accidentally got attached to EF and keeps forgetting to include the links pushing drugs or porn. The posts make about as much sense as the spam I reject from blog comments, although to be fair there are less passages from the Bible and Moby Dick.
Indeed. It seems to be the rare instance of a human imitating a spambot perfectly.

Just for giggles, I Googled "Pascal Fries, a German neurophysiologist with the Ernst Strüngmann Institute" (Pause to ask if Pascal Fries is French - geddit?). He turns out to be real and doing not-obviously-ridiculous research. I was shocked.
