Time and again, someone starts to wonder if Jorge Castro is a human or really a robot disguised as one. With the amount of things he does in Ask Ubuntu, I think it is only fair that someone wonders the true nature of him. With the need and curiosity to dig out the truth behind the greatest mystery of all time in Ask Ubuntu, I set out to collect some hard hitting facts about some of his activities in Ask Ubuntu.
Of the 161860 posts that are on Ask Ubuntu, Jorge Castro has managed to edit a staggering 14605 of them and vote on a good 18588 posts. If you can’t comprehend that, here’s the deal in a much simpler way: Jorge edited 9.02% of all posts on Ask Ubuntu and vote on 11.48% posts.
Pretty graph of Jorge Castro’s roller coaster reputation:
Now, if you are wondering why the reputation seems to have stopped after a while, it is because Jorge Castro has turned into a true altruist, giving away his hard-earned (!) reputation as bounties. He has given away nearly half of what he has earned overall, to the point that he now has given away more than what he has currently. A staggering 191 offered bounties for a lump sum of 22,550 reputation.
Here’s the not so full set of stats about Jorge Castro (it took a good couple of minutes to populate the data):

Without needing to say, I think Jorge Castro is indeed a bot.
By the way, we are in the midst of getting askjorge.com aliased to askubuntu.com.
