Joel Furr was a Usenet kook
obsessed with lemur
s, back before Usenet
was overrun with spam and useless newsgroups. He has since mostly abandoned alt.*
like many others, but used to be all over it back in the day
He was "elected" Kibo at one point in 1994, when Kibo vanished from the net for a time. Somewhere there's a picture of the two of them together.
Also, he was threatened by Canter and Siegel over satirical Green Card Lawyers t-shirts. Later the lawyers denied ever threatening him, and Joel sold a lot of t-shirts.
Created the newsgroup alt.fan.lemurs
Claims to not be responsible for creating the newsgroups alt.fan.joel-furr,
