Gerald has since added a picture to his forum profile and has discussed other topics. It is clear he has nothing to hide, a characteristic Titor Foundation members do not share. Gerald most likely has nothing do do with John Titor or the John Titor Foundation, except that they may have studied similar material concerning black-holes. The terms 'gravity lock' and 'local gravity' have been found to be black-hole related terms. Although only two sources on the internet have been found with these terms relating to the topic of time-travel, black-holes are not far from the subject.
We apologize to Gerald for any inconvenience, he doesn't appear to be bothered much by the speculation.

Why did they assume that because the related phrases were on that website it was indicative of Titor being a hoax?
Did it not cross their minds that the opposite could be true (i.e. that Titor is using these phrases because in his world they are common venacular for time travel discussion and if we're here in the world of we-haven't-got-a-clue-how-to-time-travel there may be only one or two people thinking along the right lines at this point)?
Interesting psychological reaction to finding the phrases. Also, interesting crabbing when they found out they didn't know as much as they thought they did - that is, when they found out "gravity lock" and "local gravity" and such were common phrases in black hole discussion.
