Teju, als ze mijn proxy log greppen op "sex" dan hang ik er aan natuurlijk:

One amusing example: [...] For a long time "xx" was used as a code for "unknown" but the actual code-book declared "xx" to be the code for sex. So a lot of stories would go out under our sex topic that had absolutely nothing to do with it until we built heuristics to tell if the reporter really meant sex with their xx code. (The sex newsgroup was, for some reason, one of the most popular.)
