I don't know... Maybe you all know a lot more than I do. Maybe you knew right away that the "matt" message was a hoax.
For otherwise I can't understand why matt deserved to be attacked for not knowing enough about net-language, (NT), and netiquette, (not posting her/his e-mail adress).
Heck, when I first stumbled upon this board, I didn't know the first thing about message boards and links and chat. Until recently I never thought of putting my e-mail address on my posts.
I still have to ask about things that are cut and dried for you veterans of the net. And I am fortunate that I meet with patient people who don't mind taking a minute off to explain basics to this computer nitwit - without putting me down for not knowing all that stuff.
Matt was not so lucky last night. She/he didn't understand the in-jokes, or the abbro's (short for abreviations...).
Maybe matt is a clusterhead. Maybe s/he is a clusterhead's faithful support. So I think it would have been nice if somebody would have had the charity to extend a welcome. Or at least enquire what matt was seeking on our MB.
So jump on me for being stupid enough to be taken in by the hoax of the year.I'd much rather be
stupid and taken-in, but caring...
Painfree nights and days, and love from me to you.
