Well, I just did a whois and here are the results (BTW, my guess is that
EF! would be a .org instead of a .com...):

	Voguemail (EARTHFIRST-DOM)
	   1931 Curtis Avenue
	   Redondo Beach, CA 90278
	   US

	   Domain Name: EARTHFIRST.COM

	   Administrative Contact, Technical Contact, Zone Contact:
	      Fortier, Tom  (TF334)  tom at CRUZNET.NET
	      310-379-4152

	   Record last updated on 07-Nov-96.
	   Record created on 07-Sep-96.

	   Domain servers in listed order:

	   DNS.VOGUEMAIL.COM            207.13.170.83
	   DNS.DSPHERE.NET              204.250.78.10

Here is the opening paragraph of the page:

	We, at Earth First!, know that our organization might not have
	the largest brain pool, when compared with other causes, and
	that we don't shower quite as often as other groups do, and
	that we have few friends, and that we sell rain forest wood
	for home building to support our cause, and we like to write
	really long sentences, but we don't care because we have
	nothing better to do and we are always looking for new
	members.

A cursory reading of this paragraph reveals it to be a rather lame
attempt at satire.  Mike, you are either a fool or a liar.  Which is
it?
