At one time, there were two distinct networks of WWIV BBS's. There was WWIV Net (which I believe was the original) and WWIV Link. I believe that WWIV Link was the result of some type of political fallout.
That's about all the detail I know. I haven't had much luck finding any material on the Web. I was between 10 and 14 years old at the time, hyperactive as hell with a short attention span.
What I do remember, however, were various songs about people such as "Bonnie Dundee" with lewd references interspersed throughout. There were also lots of references to music by Frank Zappa
and the Dead Kennedys
Excuse me, I'm feeling a little verklempt.
