There Is No Cabal

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

There Is No Cabal is a catchphrase used on Usenet.[1] Its common abbreviation, TINC, is used humorously to suggest that people should lighten up and not see a conspiracy around every corner. It is alternatively used as a pseudo-ironic statement, since presumably an insider or someone who knows "the cabal" would inevitably deny that there is a cabal. It was used extensively by members of the backbone cabal.
