This is a random question, but I need someone to make sense of something for me.  A client of mine wants me to put up a website for him.  I am doing so.  In the meantime, he got thousands of business cards printed up that say "His Name, Publisher".  I don't understand why he calls himself a publisher so I asked out of curiosity.  He answered in a very impolite way, "It's a real thing, look it up."  I looked it up and can't find anywhere where someone uses this title unless they are an actual publisher of printed material, eBooks, or informational content.  In fact, the very few paragraphs he has printed on his website aren't even his words, as his website isn't an informational one, but mainly a dating site.

I would have gone with "His Name, Founder" or "His Name, Owner", but he insists that he is the publisher of the website.  I'm big on terminology, and am probably just splitting hairs, but has anyone come across this and/or could explain it to me?
