A major figure in Usenet, and probably deserving of Net.God status in his own right. Does a fair amount of moderation on news.announce.newgroups.
A quote, from a rant about automated junk postings to Usenet by porn sites, and headhunters:
God damn it, it is not acceptable, it is NOT
FUCKING ACCEPTABLE for a *single* post that is from a *person* talking to other *people* to be deleted, to be dropped on the uncaring floor to make room for machine generated spew.
Full text of the rant, along with some additional thoughts after the fact, are at http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/writing/rant.html
On Usenet II, he is the czar for net.writing, as well as a member of the Usenet II Steering Committee.
