Why did Douglas Adams call Paul Neil Milne Johnstone the worst poet?

Douglas Adams evidently named Paul Neil Milne Johnstone the worst poet in the universe in the original *Hitchiker's Guide* radio broadcast. Why him? Evidently they went to school together, but I still don't understand exactly what motivated Douglas Adams to name him the worst poet. Also, how did Johnstone react to that?
