Kibo Is God
Kibo would quickly respond to any post that mentioned his name, using grep to search the entire Usenet feed for such posts. This led to the joking impression that Kibo was an omniscient being akin to the Usenet Oracle, the Invisible Pink Unicorn, and Bob. This in turn led to the creation of alt.religion.kibology by Kibo and his fans.
Kibo’s posts would often be followed by an incredibly long signature as a parody of the increasingly detailed and self-aggrandizing signatures of other Internet users.
In 1992, Kibo issued the Happynet Proclamation proposing to reorganize Usenet into three top-level domains for “bozo”, “non-bozo”, and “mega-bozo” discussion groups.
1992 Presidential Campaign
Kibo ran a fake online campaign for President in 1992 to parody the strong third-party showing of Ross Perot. An FTP archive stored copies of Kibo’s online statements alongside the speeches of Clinton, Bush, and Perot, and a copy of this archive was briefly served by the official Internet site of the White House until the Libertarian Party complained about the inclusion of Kibo’s statements while their own candidate’s statements were excluded.
