Recently I joked around with Doug about Usenet archives at Right now I'm writing an article about the issue. Aside from the incident where Katha Pollit's posts here were used in Mugger's column in the NYPress, does anyone else know of someone using archived posts on a discussion list or Usenet as a way to embarrass or discredit someone well-known or semi-well-known? Or maybe you have your own story about this happening and are willing to share, offlist. if you're willing, I'll use it, but anonymize you and any other compromising information.
