As seen on the alt.tasteless FAQ, archives of alt.tasteless. I found these years ago (~1996) on Snedker's web page (if my memory serves me correctly). My sole contribution is disk space and reformatting into HTML. Enjoy!
Update! I can no longer claim the archives are as found and unedited. Anatoly Matlis has requested that his name be removed from his post, and the virginity of the sanctity these archives has been violated. Anyone else who wants his name munged just needs to ask (nicely - rude requests and unnecessary displays of attitude will printed out and used as toilet paper)

Archives - alt.tasteless 1993

It's a mix of fact, fiction and flames, sorted by ... well, not sorted at all. Still, it's a good bunch of posts. By reading through the 700 kb of filth, you will see the start of the NAMBLA flaming, hear about the rising beastialist movement, read jolly fiction, be astounded by life in the army, enjoy low-brow poetry of striking beauty, GG Allins suicide, in short: get a peek at what's happening in the lives and minds of a lot of sick people around the world. And of the main events: GG Allins suicide, Waco, NAMBLA, Karla Homolka, certain peoples summer holidays, Michael Jacksons brush and stroke with some kids and the law etc. The Archive93 is not a 100% proof tasteless file. It's a picture of the group, and therefore contains funny one-liners and overlong stupid flames as well. Actually, in the overlong stupid flame catagory I think specifically of the 210 line "Shit on Romania, piss on the Romanian forger! (Russian poetic justice)" flame. The tastelessness in it is standard, but it's so preposterous it's worth reading. Same goes for Mrs. Neestas tale of her abortion. Bad writing can be an asset. There's nowhere like alt.tasteless. -tiny twisted penis adhering to unpleasantly bloated stomach PS: The misattributions and errors are a feature.

"This form of censorship has no place on alt.tasteless. It makes undue assumptions about what is and is not acceptable, does not mention bowel movements, boogers or menstruation, and shows a small-minded inability to take pleasure from the unfortunate pyschological damage of others."

The year in alt.tasteless started well. 43400 readers, and fine writers producing 2.5 Mb per month. Since then we've had a substantial increase in traffic, but sadly not in the quality. The latest readership report for alt.tasteless tells us that we're now 82.000 and produce 4.5 Mb per month. The extra 2 Mb are mostly inane flames and ego shit. Memorable posts are seen, but not as frequent. We've seen many good posts this autuum, but it's nothing compared to the first part of the year.

I know tastes and testis differ etc., but I hope that we can agree on something like:

With the amount of good material in AT, no-one is being cheated if we don't post forgettable follow-ups
Let's only include the necessary parts of the post(s) we're following up to.

Fine. Now to the main attraction. From the ca. 33 Mb that is alt.tasteless 1993, I have saved around 1 Mb. You don't have to have a degree in advanced statistics to see it's only 3% of the traffic. And I'll cut it further down, before posting it as Archive93.

It's a mix of fact, fiction and flames, sorted by ... well, not sorted at all. The only editing I have done is deleting every post with more than 150 lines in it. This keeps the Archive93 to a postable size, and ensures that every article can be read in less than 3 minutes. It's still a stupid idea, though.

It's allowed to call Archive93 flawed and unjust. It'll be posted every now and then until the 20th december.
