You're trying to remember the newsgroup entitled
alt.dinosaur.barney.die.die.die (you do remember news groups, right? LOL)

I will never regret anything ever posted against the evil purple one! He
must go. He is evil. If there ever is an apocalypse, I'm sure Barney will
be at the root of it.

One of the greatest real achievements of the anti Barney movement was to
coopt jihad.net a url that they maintain to this day, keeping it out of the
hands of those who might do true harm with a site with that address.
