Joe Jenetts <--ageless--> project highlighting the non-commercial portion of the web has grown. Us old farts are being overrun by twentysomething young whippersnappers. This is good news.

A new secret code word : FUDL (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt and LIES).

Long time internet users developed their own secret language for communication when we were constrained by slow modems and early mail clients. Some examples are LOL (Laughing Out Loud), ROTFL(Rolling On The Floor Laughing) and others. Occasionally a company has the distinction of being added to this secret language.
