         Please Leave Our Newsgroup, Kid (Usenet, slang)

From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      [Usenet: possibly influenced by British slang ?plonk? for cheap booze, or
      ?plonker? for someone behaving stupidly (latter is lit. equivalent to
      Yiddish schmuck)] The sound a newbie makes as he falls to the bottom of a
      kill file. While it originated in the newsgroup talk.bizarre, this term
      (usually written ?*plonk*?) is now (1994) widespread on Usenet as a form of
      public ridicule.
