Fishy, and not really a good way to get back in good with people regardless of whether or not it was true. Wouldn't it just have been simpler to man up and say, I'm sorry, I made a mistake (regardless of which type of mistake it was--insulting people or letting underage cousins onto the forum), and just be done with it? I never understood why people feel the need to tell stories when they screw up. True or not, they don't accomplish anything, and often just make things worse. I could believe the author being 12, but I also think they're the same person. My money is on both being ~Zach, and that ~Zach is 12. Or something close. Just saying.
