Any day now, if it hasn't happened already, some friend will fix you with the gaze that used to signal a disquisition on the merits of the merlot grape and announce that last night, while you were watching John Wayne on the tube, he was trolling the Net. ...
The sad truth is that your friend the Net troller spent last night in front of a monitor just as you did. Except while you were watching the Duke deck the bad guys, he was plowing through acres of "uupsi alt.internet.services:3258 comp.org.eff.talk:14065."
Odds are, you had more fun.

Earliest Citation:
In the world of wide-area computer networking, the "haves" and the "have nots" could be called the "Internauts" and the "Internots," and so the vernacular of our language will have to be expanded to reflect the age of the Internet. ...
So, let's consider our castoff Internots. Are we to bemoan their fate, those with ready access to thousands of journals, millions of books, mega-bytes of data on CD-ROM, and professional staff? No, I don't think the Internots are a disadvantaged subclass. They're just future Internauts awaiting a connection.
