There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins. Ecclesiastes 7:20

From Email Essentials

In the early days of the Internet, harmless fun could be had passing along a fun joke but these days it is generally considered a nuisance. And it can be more than a nuisance.

Part of the problem is that the ‘jokes’ are often forwarded without any editing. There’s often many, nested quote marks from having been forwarded so many times. This makes the humor content much harder to read.

Worse still, each forwarding often includes the email addresses of all the previous recipients. If this message is seen on an infected computer all those addresses can be ‘farmed’ and become targets for virus infection.

A sure sign of a novice email user is the unedited subject line that has lots of Re: and Fw: tags in the front.

If you do send on jokes via email, be considerate to your fellow emailers.Change the subject line to just the original heading.Consider prefacing the subject with a word like JOKE: or FUNNY: some companies insist on staff doing this for non-business related messages and it seems a good way to distinguish these messages from ‘normal’ email.Edit the message down so only the main text of the joke remains.Remove all quote marks > etc Remove all mentions of previous senders and receivers.

And finally, be aware that some of these jokes are less than tasteful and might not be appreciated by some people who get your forwarded attempt at humor.

WorldNetDaily Commentary
Is the Pope Catholic?
Craige McMillan

The media’s favored agenda isn’t hard to discern if you can still rub two brain cells together. More abortions – better, faster and cheaper. "Choice" – as long as its a leftist choice – is what makes America great.

"Sex before eight, or it’s too late," taught in the public schools with extra credit awarded for homosexual encounters. Socialized medicine, because somebody has to pay for all the sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS medicine – heaven knows, the participants can’t afford it.

Schools, hospitals and universities forced to provide generous services to illegal immigrants as if they were legal citizens. While we’re at it, let’s make sure it’s easy for these illegal immigrants to vote. We wouldn’t want real Americans who have arrived here legally, "worked hard and played by the rules" to determine the outcome of our elections. They might not want to pay for the media’s socialist agenda. And don’t forget the "hate crime laws" to shield reporters from giving equal time to opposing views.
