I know netiquette, I've been on the internet far
longer than you i imagine and remember endless
september on usenet in 1993. On the otherhand, I spit
on academic snobbery, unfriendly people and PEOPLE WHO
ARE CONDESCENDING. I rarely RARELY if ever get into
flame wars. To tell you the truth I dont think i've
had a strongly worded disagreement over email since
the mid 90s. All I'm asking you to do is be

I'm on like, 5 different lists. I have them auto
sorted by folder.

What ticked me off is it just had an aire of arrogance
which I am known to respond negatively to. Perhaps it
has something to do with how emotions rarely get
portrayed accurately over email.
