**What is ATJ?**

~ A highly warped discussion group littered with jokes in very poor taste, often recycled countless endless times. Do not expect yourself or your ideas to be treated with respect. Do not whine or complain when you are insulted. The nature of humor in this group is dark, black humor in the worst possible taste - nothing is held sacred or respected. For example, on 9.11 jokes about that event were already being posted the same day. If you don't approve of this, rather stay away. We don't care about your personal sensibilities, your religion, your nationality, your political affiliation, which terrorist organization has your support or your personal tragedies. We won't go easy on you for any reason whatsoever.

**When was ATJ started?**

On October 5, 1992.. an Alaskan, Eric J. Olson put up the very first post - a crosspost that carried on a discussion from alt.config.

The next post was a flame, thus setting the true nature of this forum.

**What may be posted here?**

~ Replies to discussion threads, flames, and jokes of the tasteless variety. In short, anything you like!
However, please note that your ISP may choose to enforce certain posting rules, such rejecting posts which contain binary attachments. They may also place other restrictions on you, such as not allowing copyrighted material to be infringed by publicly posting it without credit. ISPs and news server service providers all have their own ideas of what you should or should not be allowed to post. Most will adopt a helpful attitude towards you if you respond politely to their warnings. Some will not. If you do have problems with one lot, realize that their are plenty of other providers out there who will be happy to take your money. If anybody does complain to your ISP about your posts, you may wish to slit your throat.

**When was the first tasteless joke posted in ATJ?**

On October 7, 1992, Alex Howerton, interrupting a flame-war, whined about where all of the jokes were, posted a recycled joke, laughed at it himself, then pleaded for more lame, worn-out jokes to be posted, and was flamed in the next post.
