    Hi Wade.

    Suppose Dr. Baloney got himself an account on some university server, perhaps
    by hacking, perhaps by a well placed friend, perhaps even by getting a
    registration for a 0 hour course under that name. You could then have the Ph
    server say something like: Baloney, Dr. Tony P. I imagine the "P" would stand
    for "Phony," since that seems to be what Dr. Baloney is suggesting. But I
    must confess, I have not actually looked him up on a Ph server. (Of course,
    with a name like Baloney, he might not even try to go on a Ph. server, but
    that's another matter.)
