The day has long past since the Internet was a "club" where enthusiasts 
communicated with each other and had a "gentleman's agreement" to abide 
by certain rules of etiquette.  Since "teh intarnet" is here now, it's 
pretty much become an untamed wilderness, where people feel they can do 
pretty muc what they want with very little concern for any "rules".

FWIW, I agree with you, though.

a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should
it be left to irresponsible action." -- George Washington
