Emily Post's Netiquette

I think we all have a few things that annoy us when it comes to the Internet and social media.  Some of mine: unnecessary reply-alls, adding me to a Facebook group if I don't know you and we haven't discussed the group, unnecessary CC when a BCC would suffice, people who insist you must follow them on Twitter if they follow you, e-vites for formal occasions (anything to do with a baby or wedding).  Another is something that just happened.  I emailed a politician I've talked with in the past and CC'ed one of his staffers.  Then today I see that staff has added me to their generic email list.  Jun 11, 2013 2:18 PM PT

The Key to Getting Into Harvard? Abstinence

Ok, I'm sure there are other factors, but I found this recent poll released by The Harvard Crimson interesting.  Among the findings was that 72 percent of those at Harvard enroll as virgins.  For comparison, a 2007 study reported that 52 percent of high schoolers are virgins, slightly down from 54 percent in 2002.
