Subject: Re: Word of the Year: VOTE NOW!

My votes are 1 (most beautiful) : sylvanshine. (I've never seen this

before, but I love it)

2 (most imaginative): spamming (with a note that hackers credit this

one, not to spam in a fan, but to an old Monty Python skit--and it's

in _The New Hacker's Dictionary_, so it may not really be a new word).

3 (Most trendy) casual day

4 (most euphemistic): challenged

5 (most promising) infobahn

6 (most useful) this is a tough one, but I'd go with netiquette

I should note here that I'm not a member of the ADS, so you may not

want to count my vote.
