[gorjuss] began in September 1999, kept going for a couple of years, died for a few more, and got revived in 2012, then died again. I’m quite fond of it.
It was deliberately, stubbornly retro: sent in plain text via a Mailman list, archived in zero-style HTML on the web by Pipermail.
It looked and acted like something out of the 1990s, which is of course precisely what it was.
It’s dead now, though. RIP.
