    Sexton also, IMO, coined the acronym PLONK.

    PLONK-Please Log Off, Net Kook- Richard Sexton claims to have
    originated the use of the term in newsgroups in 1988. He defined it as
    plonk(n): the sound made by an asshole being dropped in your killfile.

    Another great piece of triva. Thanks, Jimchip. :)

    I love all this *old* usenet history.
    Wish I could have seen it evolve.
