Thereby rendering yourself vulnerable to an emotional DoS at the sweaty
hands of the InterNet's limitless armies of assholes. The humanity!
I find life goes easier when I assume that posters intended to put a
smiley at the end of each paragraph (like the above), but refrained

who make the network possible are also those least suited to living a
normal life on it.
