  1. They were invented by some member of some underground organization a friend of
    a friend and all that. Basically they're posted to drive people right off the
    deep end to make them think something has gone wrong with their connection or
    their computers. These postings also waste tremendous amounts of bandwidth as
    everything has to be reposted at least 47 times as well as all the comments
    about these yenc posts. I believe they came about back in the days of the amiga
    computers and the 14.4 baud rate modems. Way back around 1992 a few posted in
    this "yenc" which is a slur of yankee meaning foreign. They are just posted
    today to disrupt newsgroups.
