Ah; as I said, I still bear the scars...
Basically, I tried to create aus.bizarre (modelled after alt.bizarre) but
some did not like it, and promptly removed it. To cut a long story short,
it involved a newgroup/rmgroup war, which sadly I lost :-(
It also just about brought ACSnet to its knees, because I automated my
side of things (I don't know what John did, but it was likely automated
too). I guess you had to be there...
After that, though, Iron Bar and I became friends.
