Well, it had to be done ... and I did it.

I have employed the all-powerful Bayesian phylogenetic inference via
Markov chain Monte Carlo Methods and, given the tremendous amount of state
chages in Richard Zander during his evolution as a human being, I have
determined that he has a REALLY REALLY low probability of existence. It
may well be that throughout this thread on this list, we may have been
merely reading an incredibly complex autoresponse algorithm...from a
machine....
