BBS & Pirate Group Story from 1985


Recommended Posts

The Group called themselves Atari Pirates Incorporated, or API for short. I was not a part of this pirate group, but I knew some of them at school. I remember one of the pirates, "The Dark Knight", bragging on one of the local BBSs about the forthcoming newspaper article. And he was declaring "victory" over the other rival pirate groups in the area.

The date was Sunday, August 4, 1985 when the article came out. I remember being surprised by it when I retrieved the newspaper that morning. The article made a big splash, but probably not as the pirates expected.

The rest of the story and scans of the newspaper article are available at the following link:
