|Rule 1 - NEVER USE THE CAPS LOCK! IT
IS THE MOST ANNOYING WAY OF TYPING EVER! SO, FIRST RULE: NO CAPS! (ex:
HI AMIT! WHATS UP?)
Rule 2 - If you IM someone, please try to have a conversation with them. Refrain from doing the following:
or else it'll turn out something like this in the not-so-distant-at-all future:
amram71:why do you IM me when you know we aren't gonna have a conversation
go climb a tree or something if you're that bored..
Rule 3 - Refrain from the following:
annoyingbuddy:yA aMiT WwWwHuTt iZ UPPPppppPPPP!!
i won't even ask you about yourself cuz chances are i have no idea what the heck you asked me..
Rule 4 - Refrain:
huhbuddy:I can't w8 4 when we go 2 the moo v's 4 my d8 2nite!
amram71:47324 + 1 = 43525
Rule 5 - No more than 32 messages when i am away. if i'm away, it means.. i'm not there, and i won't talk to you. so stop thinking i will. actually, 90% of the time i'm just bored outta my mind that i'm still there and if you IM me, i'll come back. so screw this rule.
Rule 6 - If you IM me once, and I don't answer, try again. If i don't answer, try 1 more time.. if still no answer, give up. I either don't wanna talk, or i'm not there.
whereareyoubuddy:are you there?
whereareyoubuddy:talk to me!

Rule 7 - Don't.. Please don't.. do this:
amram71 logged off, aka,
