Now, do not get me wrong - i am not scared. Espesially since i did not know who he was - which is problematic, i agree. But it is still not the reason to jump behind the server!
Any ideas as to WHAT it is and why it links to ScepticOverlord post ?

Just scroll down to my post. While of course paying attention to all the important stuff other honorable ATS users posted and no Orson or Wells interfered them,by the way.

It looks like there's a bbcode tag: "[o]", that when you put it in your post, is replaced with that message. Like this:

Jumping out from behind the server and shouting BOO!

PS: Slightly off topic, but I will share the trick for how to put bbcode tags in your post, without having them parsed.

The trick is to use an empty bold or italics section, to 'break' the tag. An empty italics section looks like this (in the editor):
[i][/i]

Just a start and end italics, with nothing in between.

So, first you type the bbcode you want:
"Use the [quote] tag to display quoted text!"

Then, you drop the little start/end italics tag after every open-bracket ("["):
"Use the [[i][/i]quote] tag to display quoted text!"

That way, when the post is displayed, you get the un-processed text:
"Use the [quote] tag to display quoted text!"
