Hi, Luigi:

I started interacting through the internet back in 1991. No mousse in my 
computer. Newsgroups was my first interaction. From that, I interacted 
by almost any media.

If I had to follow any rule: 1) I wasn't aware of them, or 2) I simply 
ignored them, or 3) I just simply quitted. I barely don't remember any 
issue on my side in already 26 years of net talk.

Hope this answers your question.
