After Season 2 of Survivor was over, the EBT created a public forum named Surviiivor.com. It was met with instant controversy.
At the start of Season 3 of Survivor, a splinter group of members formed the Acme Brain Trust or ABT. Virtually all of the members of the former EBT left to join the new ABT.
