sci.astro seemed devoted to ridiculing ZetaTalk, and astonishing number of postings with this focus so that fully half the Usenet content was discussing ZetaTalk in some manner.

Re: Planet X: a NEW Zetan Emissary?, Aug 15, 2002
sci.astro has been the site of a continuous ZetaTalk presence since Early 2001, when sightings at the Zeta Coordinates began. At mid-year 2002, ZetaTalk was refusing to release new coordinates for Planet X as it was clear that debunkers were postured to Mislead Amateurs when the planet would only be visible in the light poluted hours head of dawn, stating that a disinformation campaign was planned. The disinformation campaign apprently proceeded anyway.
