THE "FUN WITH USENET" MANIFESTO Very little happens on Usenet without some sort of response from some other reader. Fun With Usenet postings are no exception. Since there are some who might question the rationale of some of the excerpts included therein, I have written up a list of guidelines that sum up the philosophy behind these postings. One. I never cut out words in the middle of a quote without a VERY good reason, and I never cut them out without including ellipses. For instance, "I am not a goob" might become "I am ... a goob", but thats too mundane to bother with. "Im flame proof" might (and has) become "Im ...a... p...oof" but thats REALLY stretching it. Two. If I cut words off the beginning or end of a quote, I dont put ellipses, but neither do I capitalize something that wasnt capitalized before the cut. "I dont think that the Church of Ubizmo is a wonderful place" would turn into "the Church of Ubizmo is a wonderful place". Imagine the posting as a tape-recording of the posters thoughts. If I can set up the quote via fast-forwarding and stopping the tape, and without splicing, I dont put ellipses in. And by the way, I love using this mechanism for turning things around. If you think something stinks, say so - dont say you dont think its wonderful. ... -- D. J. McCarthy (dmccart@cadape.UUCP)
