Unfortunate names in 'banding.

Just looked at front page and noticed that there's a new variant called Neoband. For real old-timers from rgra, that is an ironically unfortunate name... It does appeal to my ... twisted ... sense of humor.

I think that is deliberately exactly what you think it is.

None of the nasty things that you have said or implied about this variant are true.

I was around for the final throes of one of his alter-egos. Real old timer... you are making me feel old now!

Once upon a time there was a controversial guy with the name "Neo" on rec.games.roguelike.angband, a newsgroup in the good old days ("Twisted" was one of his names also).

If you search for Neo, Angband and newsgroup you will find some archived stuff.

Oh, the guy who inspired the Paranoid Howler Monkey?

LOL. This guy was apparently trolling quite a lot of newsgroups. (If trolling is the right word.)
