Ah, the memories.
See also these three papers that were done during the months before
that government report came out:

http://www.rogerclarke.com/II/NetNation.html (long version)
http://www.acs.org.au/president/1997/acsnet/acsnet.htm (with Tom W)
Aside: it's a credit to BCDE that they run a proper archive.
