Used in one post to atl.general on July 17, 1996 to start a flame war. The message was posted through As the address does other completely non-Hillyardic activity on the net in audio and video related newsgroups (even a home page), I'm not as certain that this came from Hillyard as I am with the other names. None of Wood's other posts has ever been through, though--they have been through AOL or through a school account at Georgia State University. None of the others used Free Agent, either. The post was cancelled later, so I believe it was probably a forgery from Hillyard.
