Homer used it to post gossip about many Springfieldians. Due to the site's major popularity, Mr. X is awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Homer eventually reveals himself to be Mr. X and no one gossiped around him any more.

This turns out to be true and Homer is taken to The Island as a result.

This domain is now claimed by FOX in the real world. In Matt Groening's other show, "Futurama", Bender calls himself Mr. X so he won't be killed by the mafia.
