6. Serdar Argic aka Ahmet Cosar, ro...@anatolia.org, 84 votes
Did the evil ZumaBot massacre all of the Turks and all of the
Armenians slaughtered to date, and cause them to blame each other? Will
we ever know the truth behind this convoluted conspiracy? And what part
did JFK's assassins play in it?

Devilbunnies and other cute fluffy things, BEWARE!!! Your days are
numbered... =) "Bill is a callous mercenary who leads a movement to kill
anything cute. (Seriously!) His prime hatred is rabbits, because they
are cute and fluffy. His team attacks rabbits at every opportunity, using
fireaxes, shotguns, and urine (which has been "blessed" by one of their
lunatic clerics). The number of cute fluffy animals Bill has coldly offed

Other Dishonorable Mentions:
Quoted from one of the ballots that arrived by email: "People who try to
be evil but fail are: Satan, Kevin Walsh, Trashcan Man, Crisper T Thou,
Martin Hannigan, and Kath Courtney." Sorry, people disagreed with you and
voted for Martin anyway.
Another quote: "Most evil person? How about a group of people? Such as
those that keep creating alt.fan.xxxxx or alt.x.y.y.y?"
I couldn't find out who the creators were because my newsreader claims
those groups don't exist! ;)
And another quote: "I'd vote for all those who create
alt.groups.with.silly.long.names -- the newsreader I'm using forces me to
unsubscribe to each of these separately; there are literally *hundreds* of
Alternatively, look up those who post in alt.binaries.pictures; in the
latest post of "top 25 users by volume" they occupy 24 places (the
other one posts in alt.binaries.sounds) and collectively account to
38% of all traffic on the net!"
My newsreader doesn't recognize alt.group.with.silly.long.name -- guess
I'm lucky, I don't have to unsubscribe. ;)
Yeah...what's evil here is the amount of copyright violation that amounts
to. As a writer and artist I find it truly disgusting.
Mark Moisan, mmo...@acs.bu.edu for flaming by email a follow-up article
written by Lewis McCarthy as a follow-up to a follow-up article
rb7...@u.cc.utah.edu had written in response to my original call for votes
posting. Not only did Mark's flame bear no concievable relationship to
the original cfv or to either follow-up which followed, it was addressed
to me but emailed to Lewis! Confidental to Mark: I can't use my dead
ex-boyfriend as a source of "dumb facts" because I haven't gotten around
to killing him yet, and probably won't, as he wouldn't suffer enough that
I now return you to your regularly scheduled newsgroup. Bom dia.

Okay, who ran the contest for Least Evil Person On Usenet and didn't post
the cfv on alt.evil? Or the results? Well? Speak up!
