Dear friends,
 Part of * netiquette, * the system of courtesy that Internet
communicators have observed, includes signing all e-mail messages. We need
to use our full names and URLs , so that readers will be able to verify
the authorship.
 Credibility, the "good character" of the author, is enhanced by a
complete identification. The opposite would be anonymous mail.
 It is important to identify the writer of each e-mail message.
Frankly, "a friend" could be an expert at public information or a
scoundrel. How would we know who wrote the e-mail (see below) about the
credentials of public administrators? Would it be a partisan attack? We
simply need to sign all messages and provide the URL below.
