This is the time of year that all the newbies arrive with their unbridled enthusiasm as well as their lack of netiquette.

Let's all remember...
...how exciting those jokes were to forward to friends.
...when we assumed that all Smiths were related.
...when we didn't know that all CAPS was shouting.
...when we never heard of list vs. digest mode.
...when we first found that spell check button.
...when we realized just how important an "Accurate Subject Line" really is.
...when we accidentally sent that dirty joke to the list.
...when we read that dirty joke on a list.
...when we couldn't unsub from a list no matter what.
...when we felt it was our civic duty to forward all virus warnings as
instructed.
...when we believed all those hoaxes sent to us.
...when we made our first online discovery.
...when we felt confident enough to assist someone new................
