From Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) [jargon]:

  B1FF /bif/ [Usenet] (alt. `BIFF') n. The most famous {pseudo}, and the
     prototypical {newbie}. Articles from B1FF feature all uppercase letters
     sprinkled liberally with bangs, typos, `cute' misspellings (EVRY BUDY
     LUVS GOOD OLD BIFF CUZ HE"S A K00L DOOD AN HE RITES REEL AWESUM THINGZ
     IN CAPITULL LETTRS LIKE THIS!!!), use (and often misuse) of fragments of
     {talk mode} abbreviations, a long {sig block} (sometimes even a {doubled


     sig}), and unbounded naivete. B1FF posts articles using his elder
     brother's VIC-20. B1FF's location is a mystery, as his articles appear
     to come from a variety of sites. However, {BITNET} seems to be the most
     frequent origin. The theory that B1FF is a denizen of BITNET is
     supported by B1FF's (unfortunately invalid) electronic mail address:
     B1FF@BIT.NET.
  
     [1993: Now It Can Be Told! My spies inform me that B1FF was originally
     created by Joe Talmadge , also the author of the
     infamous and much-plagiarized "Flamer's Bible". The BIFF filter he wrote
     was later passed to Richard Sexton, who posted BIFFisms much more
     widely. Versions have since been posted for the amusement of the net at
     large. See also {Jeff K.} --ESR]
