The concept, if not the name, existed even before widespread deployment of the Internet. In the BBS culture, the time when the boards were invaded by loudmouth snot-nosed kids was around Christmas, when kids often received computers and modems as gifts.

gifts. These new users were sometimes referred to as "Christmas ruggies" ("ruggies" being slang for "rugrats," i.e., children).

The upshot was that every September, there would be a large influx of new users: college students accessing the Internet for the first time. These newbies were not privy to the manners and folkways of Internet discussion, let alone the technical side of it. Established netizens took it upon themselves to teach the n00bs the netiquette, and within a few months the Internet would go back to being a place for sensible and intelligent discussion.[[note]][[HilariousInHindsight Stop laughing.]] We may not have had [=BitTorrent=] or Website/{{Twitter}}, but the early Internet had its charms; spam hadn't been invented yet outside of the "Make Money Fast" chain-letter, and {{troll}}s could literally be shamed off the 'net (except maybe Creator/{{Kibo}}, but that ''might'' have had more to do with the fact that he was less of a troll and more of a 90s Internet version of [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ken-m Ken M]]).[[/note]]
