Walter <-> Watson Levenshtein distance = 4.
Roberson <-> Robot Levenshtein distance = 4.
nnz(mod(+'Walter',4)) = 4
sum('Roberson') = 842 (note 8/2 = 4)
numel('Roberson') = 8 = 4+4
MATLAB Central user number: 434782 (note 7-3 = 4 and 8/2 = 4)

Yes, Walter is a real person. In fact at the Annual Meetings in June of this year, he received a highly prestigious MATLABBY Award. There was also another ceremony to celebrate his "Star" in the "Mathworks Walk of Fame". I'm including photos from the event below.
By the way, I'm also attaching the Photoshop files in case you'd like to make your own.

Of course it helps that he's on MATLAB's advisory board and gets some special things like the "Mind Reading Toolbox" and the "Crystal Ball Toolbox" that even we (other MVPs) don't have access to.

Mathworks community is outstanding plateform of science and all are performing like a team but some are Leaders like Mr. Walter Roberson. He has dedicated his most of the time to serve and help the research of the whole world.
Winning teams always have talented leaders or captans. All community members of Mathworks are just like stars and have equal contributions in promoting knwoledge and humanity all around the Globe.
Salute to all of them.

Ha Ha Ha, a good question! I would say a robot, but I bet Walter Roberson would say otherwise.
