Whoah! a HUGE archive of 2600 zines on archive.org! This was my first zine. They were hard to find in middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania and the one or two places that carried them within an hour of where I lived didn’t always have them in stock. I was a teen at the time and managed to get my hands on maybe three of them before my Dad found them along with some floppies of similarly themed (and anarchist) txt files. He warned me not to pursue that type of stuff and that if I did I’d likely wind in behind bars for a very long time. He threw them away. I was pissed. I didn’t realize it at the time but he was right. Where I was, in a very religious, insular, not-tech-savvy community if the authorities ever found those materials in my possession I would have been investigated for any computer/phone crimes in the area. Now I can browse them for free without worry!
