WORDS TO LIVE BY #1:
USENET AS SOCIETY
--------------------

Those who have never tried electronic communication may not be aware of what a "social skill" really is. One social skill that must be learned, is that other people have points of view that are not only different, but *threatening*, to your own. In turn, your opinions may be threatening to others. There is nothing wrong with this. Your beliefs need not be hidden behind a facade, as happens with face-to-face conversation. Not everybody in the world is a bosom buddy, but you can still have a meaningful conversation with them. The person who cannot do this lacks in social skills.
-- Nick Szabo

WORDS TO LIVE BY #2: USENET AS ANARCHY
--------------------

Anarchy means having to put up with things that really piss you off.
