>>>Good point -- I forget how so much of this on the Internet depends on the
honorability of its users rather than the systems that make up the net.<<

>"honorability"?
Sorry, folks. I couldn't let this one slip by. Does this mean we have
the ability to have honor, or we have the ability to practise honourable
behaviour? I whole heartedly agree that we are dependant upon the honour of
all other Internet users, as they are dependant upon ours, but I don't think
I know what honorability means.<
So now let us honorably allow this topic an honorable death, and return to
our regularly-scheduled interruption! (As the honorable originator of the word
"honorability," I expect to be appropriately credited if it someday appears in
the OED! <VBG>)
