META: The Mysterious Powernaut.Com

I've done checks on other uses of "Powernaut", and found one rival 
character (now known as the Psi-Powernaut 'cause I barely beat him into 
publication) and a brand of outboard boat motor.  But up to now I hadn't 
gone looking for Powernaut.Com.  Well, I finally did.  It's there, but I 
can't make sense of it.

Powernaut.Com is some kind of discussion board, titled "Powernaut: 
Subtitles of Destiny".  A "whois" search shows someone's owned the 
domain since 2004, which makes their Powernaut one year older than mine. 
  But "whois" only tells who hosts the domain, not who owns it.

I tried to sign up for their board, but they're not accepting new 
members.  I followed their link "Like Us on Facebook", but got a "Create 
Page" link there.  I think Facebook will let them make their own 
Powernaut page, but I'm guessing they're not at all motivated to.

... Just weird.

them dead is currently recognized in all fifty states, most recently
