Joel Furr was a Usenet kook obsessed with lemurs, 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
