Also for some reason he seems to be able to evade the player-account-timeout-logout. He's been standing there for quite a while. So I think we're up to three options, considering all of the relevant evidence:
- a poor player stuck in a very unfortunate predicament due to a glitch
- a hacker as @Hans_Oddcraft suggested
- We have found one of the aetherlight developers who was testing something and also happens to be the living incarnation of Oscar the grouch. (and a lover of snowmen)
In any event, the whole affair was/is extremely hilarious (I still am laughing over it) and it brightened up my day, so there's that.
