Despite rumors to the contrary, hungryghost rarely wears a loincloth and, in reality, looks quite dissimilar to Gandhi. Regardless, both Gandhi and hungryghost share a preference for calm and an aversion to trolls and spammers. Also, we suspect Gandhi would have chosen the username "hungryghost" if he'd created a forum account in time. But he didn't, so the username was claimed by the owner of Nth Circle, whose real name is David.
In the real world, hungryghost is a pants-wearing techie who builds websites and mobile apps and works in software engineering. Of hungryghost's past projects, the most relevant to Nth members was probably RP Samara, an app that in its heyday was the most widely used app for RingPlus mobile phone service. After the demise of RingPlus, it was the fans of Samara who led the transformation of Nth Circle to become a wider community of mobile enthusiasts.
