Welcome to the Internet!

Based on recent experiences online, I’m seriously considering putting together a “Welcome to the Internet!” email I can send to people who are obviously clueless. A few things I’m thinking of:

  • Websites don’t have to guarantee free speech.
  • A weblog isn’t a message board.
  • Never respond to spam.
  • Never open an attachment unless you’re expecting it.
  • Get a pop-up blocker, or stop using Internet Explorer.
  • You can use a different web browser.
  • What an IP address is, and how it’s easily traceable.

Any others?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
