Piracy Textfiles: Courier Membership Lists and Introductions

Of of the more intruiging aspects of the microcomputer piracy subculture has been the rise of "Courier Groups", which are dedicated to the sole purpose of transporting pirated games from the groups that pirate to high-traffic web sites and BBSes, often available with a membership fee. This more shark-like piracy approach rose in the early 1990s with the PC world, and by the middle of the decade, it was an established near-industry.
