A few lines to add to the Al Chet this year

I wrote this last year when a Jewish e-mail list I'm on got a little heated up (and it was right near Yom Kippur too) These also work for web boards, and some blogs too.


-For the Sin we have committed before you for thread hijacking,
-And for the Sin we have committed before you for off subject posting.

-For the Sin we have committed before you by forwarding a story without checking http://www.snopes.com,
-And for the Sin we have committed before you by immediately forwarding an e-mail that says "FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK!!!"

-For the Sin we have committed bfore you by not usng the spll checkur,
-And 4 the Sin we have committed b4 u by using werd acronyms.

-For the Sin we have committed before you by being too quick to flame others,
-And for the Sin we have committed before you by turning a blind eye to a flame war.

-For the Sin we have committed before you by not changing the subject line of an e-mail when writting about something completely different,
-And for the Sin we have committed before you by not putting in a subject line at all.

My "blogger-in-law" just sent me these suggestions...

-For the Sin we have committed before you by overusing emoticons :-(
-And for the Sin we have committed before you by forwarding yet another home video of someone crashing or falling, or of a home-made domino set

(Note, the :-) emoticon is 25 years old! I'll have to find the news article I read earlier today...)

If you have any other suggestions, please add them in!!

Did you check Snopes re: the age of the emoticon? Eh? ;-)
