  1. Eric Conspiracy

    A shadowy group of mustachioed hackers named Eric first pinpointed as a sinister conspiracy by an infamous talk.bizarre posting ca. 1987; this was doubtless influenced by the numerous ‘Eric’ jokes in the Monty Python oeuvre. There do indeed seem to be considerably more mustachioed Erics in hackerdom than the frequency of these three traits can account for unless they are correlated in some arcane way. Well-known examples include Eric Allman (he of the ‘Allman style’ described under indent style) and Erik Fair (co-author of NNTP); your editor has heard from more than a hundred others by email, and the organization line ‘Eric Conspiracy Secret Laboratories’ now emanates regularly from more than one site.
