How to write a forum post (linkage)

It always strikes me as the epitome of hubris to link here to the stuff I write elsewhere, so I try not to do it much. However, I did make myself laugh with this week’s column: How to write a forum post, and maybe it’ll amuse you too.

The Subject Line

This is vitally important if you want people to click though to your frothing rant carefully thought-out post. First off, you need to make sure you use caps, and as many exclamation marks as will fill out the subject line.  If it doesn’t say “URGENT! DEVS PLZ READ!” nobody will care, so do not forget those. Alternately you can keep it simple: “I quit!” or “This sux!” will also guarantee that your post will grab attention.

Not that the advice applies to anyone who reads and comments here – and I actually mean that for once. You are ALL beautiful and unique snowflakes with an unparalleled grasp of rhetoric and debate.
