Since the group is in the alt.sex hierarchy, it gets flooded by
spam about barely legal teens and hot lesbian sex. To make
the group useful in spite of this, non-spam posters preface the
subjects of their posts with "POD:", from the word pseudopod,

the target of parodies by ASC regulars, who write fake sex-spam as
it would be if it was made for/by the eldritch Old Ones.
