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)

"...I could accept this openness, glasnost, perestroika, or whatever you want to call it if they did these things: abolish the one party system; open the Soviet frontier and allow Soviet people to travel freely; allow the Soviet people to have real free enterprise; allow Western businessmen to do business there, and permit freedom of speech and of the press. But so far, the whole country is like a concentration camp. The barbed wire on the fence around the Soviet Union is to keep people inside, in the dark. This openness that you are seeing, all these changes, are cosmetic and they have been designed to impress shortsighted, naive, sometimes stupid Western leaders. These leaders gush over Gorbachev, hoping to do business with the Soviet Union or appease it. He will say: "Yes, we can do business!" This while his military machine in Afghanistan has killed over a million people out of a population of 17 million. Can you imagine that? -- Victor Belenko, MiG-25 fighter pilot who defected in 1976 "Defense Electronics", Vol 20, No. 6, pg. 110

Proboscis: The rudimentary organ of an elephant which serves him in place of the knife-and-fork that Evolution has as yet denied him. For purposes of humor it is popularly called a trunk. -- Ambrose Bierce

Q: Somebody just posted that Roman Polanski directed Star Wars. What should I do? A: Post the correct answer at once! We cant have people go on believing that! Very good of you to spot this. Youll probably be the only one to make the correction, so post as soon as you can. No time to lose, so certainly dont wait a day, or check to see if somebody else has made the correction. And its not good enough to send the message by mail. Since youre the only one who really knows that it was Francis Coppola, you have to inform the whole net right away! -- Brad Templeton, _Emily Postnews Answers Your Questions on Netiquette_
