2Hometown News – PORT ST. LUCIE – www.HometownNewsOL.comFriday, September 5, 2014Make sure to follow the rules of the InternetLogging on to the internet for the firsttime can be very confusing. There isa whole new vocabulary to learnand a new set of guidelines to follow.If you don’t follow these guidelines, youmay find your e mail box filled with somevery nasty messages called flames. Theguidelines I’m speaking of are known as“netiquette” and are an important part ofparticipating in the online community.For starters, let’s go over some basicemail etiquette. Email messages are quickto bang out and send instantly with theclick of a button, this makes them especially susceptible to bad grammar, lousyspelling and poor content. Remember,humor and sarcasm can easily get lost ina medium like email and can result insome pretty rude messages being sent.Take your time with your message andif you are trying to be funny or sarcastic,COMPUTE THISSEAN MCCARTHYuse a “smiley” or “emoticon”. These are little faces created with the characters onthe keyboard, and when looked at withyour head tilted to the left, look like littlefacial expressions.For example, :) is your basic smiley, :(is the same guy only in a bad mood, thisemoticon is a wink ;) and this :’( emoticonis crying. Emoticons can be used to putthe emotion back into a message that’sbecome sterile and mechanical. Using anemoticon can be essential to let youremail recipient know when you are “justkidding.”If you have a wordprocessor or emailclient with a spellchecker, use it whenyou compose your message. Also, watch out forthe “caps lock” buttonon your keyboard. TYPING IN ALL CAPITALLETTERS IS CONSIDERED SHOUTING ANDSHOULD BE AVOIDED!!I’ve heard the argument that typing in allcaps makes it easier to read but if youhave trouble seeing when you are typingyour message, there are other ways toincrease the font size.

Avoidfoul language and “private” or “confidential” messages. E mail routers aren’tperfect and your message may be accidentally sent to Mrs. Smith’s first gradeDiscovery class. Never send anythingyou’d be embarrassed for your Mom tosee (a deleted message can have copiesarchived all over the place). If you sendan e mail message that can get you introuble, Murphy’s Law will kick in andyou will (usually long after you thoughtthe message in question was “deleted.”)These guidelines apply not only to email but even more so to messageboards and “blogs.” Message boards arean area where netiquette is of the utmostimportance, they are online bulletinboards that are read every day by countless people all over the world and if youpost a bad message to one of theseboards, you may find yourself the centerof a “flame war” and your e mail boxflooded with hundreds of nasty responses. Use common sense when postingmessages to message boards or blogs. Ifyou have a gut feeling that maybe youshouldn’t post a message, don’t. Onceyou post a message you usually can’ttake it back and you may offend thousands.Other pitfalls to avoid in the messageboards are the “trolls”. These insidiouslittle messages are designed to generateoutrage and flames. Again, you’ll recognize them when you see them, don’trespond. That will only encourage them!Remember these words of wisdom –“don’t feed the trolls!”And lastly, don’t fall for any of thecountless “get rich schemes” on the ‘net.They’re there and you’ll know themwhen you see them. Trust me, there is nomoney waiting in Nigeria, you didn’t winsome foreign lottery and you’ll do nothing but annoy people if you forward thatchain letter. If it sounds too good to betrue then it’s probably a scam.Take the time to find out the rules ofthe road before you try to communicatewith the masses. Usually checking the“FAQ” (frequently Asked Questions)before posting messages can help prevent your e mail box from overflowingwith flames.All of these suggestions also apply toinstant messenger programs and textingas well. It is easy to forget about mannersand grammar when sending text messages and sure, it may be “just an instantmessage” but remember – there is someone on the other end.

How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield? He was aGary, Indiana police officer who wasshot to death last month on July 6.Westerfield was white. His killer, CarlLeEllis Blount, Jr. was black. Wherewas Obama? Where was Holder? OrOfficer Perry Renn? He was an Indianapolis police officer who was shot todeath just last month on July 5, the daybefore Officer Westerfield was killed.Officer Renn was white. His killer,Major Davis, was black. I don’t recallany mention by Obama about theuntimely death of Officer Renn. And, Idoubt that Eric Holder rushed to Indianapolis to make sure justice wasdone. Or, maybe I just missed it.Vermillion Parish Deputy SheriffAllen Bares was gunned down by twomen just last June 23rd in Louisiana.Deputy Bares was white. His twokillers, Quintlan Richard and BaylonTaylor, were black. Was Obama outraged?Did Eric Holder rush toLouisiana to make sure that the familyof Deputy Bares found justice?In Killeen, TX, Detective CharlesDinwiddie of the Killeen PoliceDepartment was murdered by MarvinLewis Guy, a black male. Officer Dinwiddie was white. This happened onMay 11, just over two months ago. Idon’t even recall seeing anything aboutthat on the news. Certainly, the whitecitizens in Killeen didn’t take to thestreets to loot and burn businesses.Again, I don’t recall any mention byObama or Holder. Then, there is Officer Kevin Jordan of the Griffin, GeorgiaPolice Department. He was gunneddown just two months ago on May 31.Officer Jordan was black. His killer,Michael Bowman, was white. This wasa white man murdering a black policeofficer. Where wasJesse Jackson? Where was “The Reverend” Al Sharpton? Was there lootingand burning on the streets of Griffin,Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerSt. Lucie Firefighters Dylan Seifert of Stuart, Josh Kurth of Fort Pierce, MattResch of Port St. Lucie, and Jeff Garvey of Fort Pierce holds signs at Precinct26, the Port St. Lucie Community Center, on Tuesday, August 26.Georgia? No. In fact, I don’t recallhearing about this one in the news, aswell. Why? You can draw your ownconclusions. Over the past 60 days,there have been five reported deaths ofpolice officers by gunshot in the US.Of those, four were white officers whowere murdered by black men. Blackscomplain that white officers threatenblack men more aggressively on thestreet. You can draw your own conclusions on that one, as well.Not so much a ‘Rant or aRave,’ perhaps a coupleobservationsThe intersection of 53rd Street andU.S. 1 has been a topic of discussionrecently. The speed limit set on U.S. 1North of the 53rd Street traffic signal isflowing at the rate of 55mph. Thespeed limit set on US 1, south of the53rd Street traffic signal, is a muchmore reasonable 45mph.I havenoticed that because of the ‘width’ ofthe intersection (four lanes), attempting to turn left from U.S. 1 ?onto 53rdStreet, heading West, is always a challenge. Not to mention trying to cycleor as a pedestrian walk across U.S. 1without having to sprint!I do not look forward to the eventual addition of yet another traffic signalat the intersection of 53rd Street andthe Indian River Blvd (bypass). Thefuture traffic load will require a saferway of exiting Indian River Blvd onto53rd, particularly heading West. Within 1 mile there are already three trafficsignals in that particular area of 53rdStreet. Do we want a 4th traffic signalin that already frustrating area? Trafficcircles (Roundabouts) have theiropponents but yet there are just asmany supporters (come on, comeforth!). If it hasn’t been thought outalready, I sure hope there has beensome consideration for a traffic circleat this intersection. If future development (retail, housing and hotels) doescome to the area, we will only haveworsening traffic flow issues. It wouldbe an enhancement for Grand Harbor,it could possibly be a fuel saver andmake for a more pleasurable experience for those visiting our beaches. Ihave seen an increasing number oftraffic circles in communities recentlyvisited, they could be on to somethingSee RANTS, page 9Voted # 1 Community Newspaper inAmerica in 2005, 2006, 2007.One of the top 3 in America every year since 2003.Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C.,5059 Turnpike Feeder Road, Ft.
