Yup. Laurie and I met on rec.arts.comics, actually. Almost 20 years agonow.Wouldn't 20 years ago put it prior to the great renaming? My memory is saying that was in 86.
yes, technically it was net.comics, but today, if I were to say that, the Usenet II folks would wake up from their nap to tell us they're the real fix for Usenet's problems...
