Definitions of CANCELMOOSE
Sort: Oldest first
A semi-mythical being that cancels Usenetarticles posted by others. (In general, an article can onlybe cancelled by its original author.)The Cancelmoose's usual target is spam or extremelyexcessive cross-posting.Some believe that the Cancelmoose exists only in the samemythic sense that B1FF, the NSA line eater and ShubInternet exist; others consider Cancelmoose's historicity tobe closer to that of Kibo. The latter group assume that thereal Cancelmoose is not one person (or moose), but instead isa cabal of NNTP wonks. However, the Cancelmoose is probablyreal, seeing as how it has its own website.
