I seem to recall, when I used Usenet in the late 1990s, there was some man who had his named attached to like every other newsgroup. Well not really “every other” but a lot of them.
It was like Alt.fan.Joe.Smith, Alt.Madonna.Joe.Smith, Alt.Computer.Joe.Smith, Alt.Crime.Joe.Smith and so on and so on.
I know I’m being vague, but that is all I can seem to remember. I seem to remember it was confined to the alt groups, but I could be mistaken there, it may have been other.
Does anyone know the mans actual name? And what was the story, on why so many people created Usenet groups with his name attached.
Sorry for not being able to give any more info but if you have any ideas it’ll be appreciated.
