It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions.

"...all the good computer designs are bootlegged; the formally planned products,
if they are built at all, are dogs!"

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. ...

"Every group has a couple of experts. And every group has at least one idiot.
Thus are balance and harmony (and discord) maintained. Its sometimes hard
to remember this in the bulk of the flamewars that all of the hassle and
pain is generally caused by one or two highly-motivated, caustic twits."
