Thanks Brian, I was in the fun thread and I thought it harmless. I've 
exchanged mail with the gentleman and enjoy his posts as well.
I don't know any of the other story, I thought it was a reference to that 
objectionable alien puppet that had a sitcom.

even on the LUG IRC as I recall.  Some great pictures and some great 

Alfie got his butt kicked because almost everyone hated his photographs and 
he was charging Fifth Avenue money for them. It was his
mixture of attitude and artistic sensibility that got him nailed to the 
drying rack.  If you can get past the anonymous thing,
Freak's postings are literate, witty, spelled properly, and gentle.

I haven't seen anyone criticize Mr Freak here; that bit about the grassy 
knoll was a joke. I was initially torqued about Mr Freak
because I don't normally permit anonymous LUG members (probably 120 
foot-pounds) but I'm good with it now. On the other hand, I'd
LOVE to see some of his photos.
