messaging A semi-mythical being that cancels Usenet
articles posted by others. (In general, an article can only
be cancelled by its original author.)
The Cancelmoose's usual target is spam or extremely
excessive cross-posting.
Some believe that the Cancelmoose exists only in the same
mythic sense that B1FF, the NSA line eater and ShubInternet exist; others consider Cancelmoose's historicity to
be closer to that of Kibo. The latter group assume that the
real Cancelmoose is not one person (or moose), but instead is
a cabal of NNTP wonks. However, the Cancelmoose is probably
real, seeing as how it has its own web site.
