Mad about the MUD

Unfortunately (?), we are not cows, but we're searching for MOOre information about MOOs, MUDs, MUs, MUSHs and grass.

MUD's, MOO's, MUSE's? Are these spelling mistakes or is somebody trying to tell you something you don't know anything about?

If all of these names are foreign to you, perhaps you should try a critical overview of the subject which we've graciously prepared for you if you'll be so kind as to click....

and if all of this seems to be cut and pasted together without the hand of an experienced editor, maybe you should read a short note on the well known problem of writing by committee

Let us introduce ourselves:
