By "been here forever", he didn't *literally* mean "been here forever", 
but rather that he's been here so long as to become a fixture of 
Wikipedia --- many people, even long-term contributors, cannot remember 
a Wikipedia without Tony_Sidaway.

By contrast, MarkGallagher has been here just as long as Tony_Sidaway 
has, but has not nearly had such an impressive influence --- whether 
that's a Good Thing or a Bad Thing depends, I suppose, on whether you're 
Tony_Sidaway or geni :-)
