Internet Mysteries: Who is an5858?

Those of you who read here regularly know that I love a good mystery and/or puzzle. I recently subscribed to a YouTube channel called Barely Sociable, who covers this kind of topic a lot, and one video in particular stood out: The Fake Diploma Forum Spammer – Internet Oddities.
