    Not really. The closest thing to an "Easter egg" would be undocumented features that were mainly intended to harass users such as the 'Y' restiction (forced a yes/no prompt after every user command), the 'O' (r0dent-write) restiction, and the Elite-text Ctrl-A code for users with elite-status (they could include text in messages that only other elite users could see). These were "features" that my co-sysop, Ille Homine Albe, and I used to amuse each other at some poor users' expense. Those were fun times.
