One reply on hacker news (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12949986):

Back in the days of shareware, around 1985, I wrote a program called TXT2COM. It was a simple way of turning a text file into an executable. All a user had to do was run the converted com file and the text file appeared on the screen with full scrolling, search and save. I had my name and phone number embedded in the program.

My first problem was when someone converted the Constitution of the United States into a COM file, but made some typos. I got hundreds of calls.

Then someone converted a entire library of gay porn text files which resulted in some uncomfortable phone calls to my wife while I was at work.

I released another version without my name and phone number, but the damage was done. I can still find my name embedded on com files in old archives.

The program was eventually bundled with an edition of "The Art of Computer Programming" by Donald E. Knuth. He used it to wrap some of the text files on the disk that came with the book. He paid me with a signed copy of the book and a very nice letter.
