There Is No Cabal
There Is No Cabal (abbreviated TINC) is a catchphrase used among members of Usenet. The anthropologist Gabriella Coleman calls the phrase a "running joke" based on actual "discomfort over the potential for corruption by meritocratic leaders", both on Usenet and the Debian software development platform. The alt.usenet.cabal FAQ, which begins with the phrase, reflects accusations of conspiracy that, according to the author Wendy M. Grossman, are "as old as [...] the Internet".
