I don't know about _that_, but I would like to propose that those who have been active on this newsgroup some time may well be a Legion of their own. . . the Legion of Net.Heroes. We even have our own set of villains, who appear and vanish from time to time. Probably the best candidate for net.arch.villain would be Omega.Mosely, who vanishes and reappears with the same stochastic irregularity as a good Batman villain. We've also had such perils as the Black Dude with the Hat, the Fundamentalist Circle, and the Fagbashing Empire. . . I don't want to propose noms du net.hero for others, but you've given your own: Spelling Boy. Fair enough. The power is obvious also. In his absence (sniff!), I'll propose that Jerry Boyajian be retconned as Jayem Bee, a/k/a Bibliography Boy, whose power was the ability to answer any obscure question. Me? I guess I can join up as California Kid, whose power is to read comix weeks after everyone else has discussed 'em. . . ---- You are trapped in that bright moment where you learned your doom. Dan'l Danehy-Oakes, Net.Roach My opinions do NOT represent Pacific Bell, Professional Development, or anyone else. But I'm willing to share.
