A usenet newsgroup for discussing, you guessed it, conspiracy. I don't know how it is nowadays, but when I frequented it (circa 1994-1995), it was like stepping into an alternate reality. Or rather, several alternate realities, since it seemed like there was a conspiracy theory for anything and all the regulars of the group lived in a universe of their own. You would meet survivalists, redneck gun nuts, UFO freaks, discordians, JFK buffs, holocaust deniers, and people who would calmly insist that the world really was flat. After a while, it got kinda hard to stay cool and figure out who was serious and who was not, so eventually I bailed out to preserve my precious sanity.

The newsgroup is still around, though I know not what state it's in. Since usenet overall has gone downhill in recent years, I don't think it'd be worth it.
