fool file Explained

fool file at English => English (Computer) Of Explained:

fool file

A term found on {Usenet} for a notional repository of
all the most dramatically and abysmally stupid utterances
ever. An entire subgenre of {sig blocks} consists of the
header "From the fool file:" followed by some quote the poster
wishes to represent as an immortal gem of dimwittery; for this
usage to be really effective, the quote has to be so obviously
wrong as to be laughable. More than one {Usenetter} has
achieved an unwanted notoriety by being quoted in this way.
