He's got about 9000 in rep. – alex Apr 23 '10 at 6:45

The user has a lot more rep, but was subsequently suspended until next year so his rep has been artificially set to 1. If you're really interested in what happened, you can find a lot more info about him here on MSO.

Note that this can also happen if the user has enough rep at the time of editing, but is severely downvoted.

Can he be named? – Ólafur Waage Apr 23 '10 at 16:34
@Ólafur: apparently not. – perbert Apr 23 '10 at 22:34
