<person, humour> A shadowy group of moustachioed hackers named Eric first
pinpointed as a sinister conspiracy by an infamous talk.bizarre posting ca.
1986. This was doubtless influenced by the numerous "Eric" jokes in the Monty
Python oeuvre. There do indeed seem to be considerably more moustachioed 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
(of the "Allman style" described under indent style), Erik Fair (co-author of
NNTP), Eric S. Raymond and about fifteen others. The organisation line "Eric
Conspiracy Secret Laboratories" now emanates regularly from more than one site.
