That list, an email virus I've received dozens of times, is swipped from my

Jargon Watch column in Wired.

I've rec'd it six times myself. Even from my sis, who is an Episcopal

minister in Michigan and logs on once a year....

As I told The Washington Post: "I always wanted to be in The Post, but I

assumed that my name would appear with my work."

I think being immortalized in an email virus beats being in the Post any

old day. Sheesh, man, you're up there with the Modem Tax and the Good

Times virus.

Of course, the best part will be when your list comes around again every

year or two.
