That wasn’t the question.  The question was how to say “I am” … not to worry about the people who have not said they exist. :-)

((If you never authored anything, on the contrary that is no proof you *don’t* exist.
And its too late now anyway, you just authored something. You authored 
[ is mail:In-Reply-To of  <> ] 
also known as 
<mid:82314AAA-C4F0-4883-BDDA-16BF099D9E52@semanticidentity.com>
and so I can here refer to you as you as
[ is dc:creator of  [is mail:In-Reply-To of  <> ] ]
.))
