Hi, everyone, this is Doug, with this month's traffic report. Once a month, during the first 10 days of that month, I send the report to the entire HUMOR list. Welcome to the month of January, 2000.

Several features are new to the Traffic Report. These are the Top 15 Contributors and the Best & Worst Jokes of the month. I am also going to make you work for the Best & Worst Jokes and Contributions of Humor. The jokes themselves will not be shown, only the link. Follow the link if you want to see what the joke is. For more information on this, see the Best Jokes section.

Since this is my first Traffic Report, here is how I keep the data. All Digest and Joke data is kept in an Access database. From this data and the original Digests, I generate the Indexes and Reports.

If any Contributor would like lists of their jokes or any other info, let me know. I will promise a report within a month for any requests.

The number of contributors and the average jokes per day is down a good bit from a year or more ago. We could use some more people who are willing to contribute jokes. See the commands below for how to become a contributor.

A diversity of humor: sources, forms, subjects. Freedom of expression for contributors. Protection of sensitivities for readers (heading warning requirement). HUMOR CONTRIBUTOR RULES (brief version) Subject line should disclose the subject of the humor. Subject line should include warning if potentially offensive. One contribution per day. Only substantial examples of verbal humor should be posted. Discussion, requests, and criticisms are not to be posted. No personal attacks, apologies, reactions or retractions. Articles should normally be shorter than 25 lines (99 lines max). Conserve bandwidth: Avoid blank lines; No ASCII art or sig file. A contributor who violates the rules may be suspended. = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = To Subscribe to the Humor List: Send an e-mail to: leave the subject area blank; in the BODY of the letter, type: SUB HUMOR yourfirstname yourlastname - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - A few of the more widely used commands: Send an e-mail to: leave the subject area blank; in the BODY of the letter, type: GET HUMOR GUIDE become a contributor QUERY HUMOR check your settings SIGNOFF HUMOR leave the main list (unsubscribe) SIGNOFF HUMOR-P leave the contributor's list SET HUMOR NOMAIL stop all mail for a temporary period SET HUMOR MAIL receive humor as it is posted SET HUMOR DIGEST daily collections of humor (default) SET HUMOR CONCEAL conceal your address from spammers Back to Top = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = I am going to try to choose the BEST & WORST Joke of the month. Just remember, this is MY opinion, not those of the other ListOwners or anyone else. Your tastes may differ and you may feel differently. I will only provide a link to the joke, not the actual joke, although I will provide the Subject line (Topic). Since there are now HTML versions of all Digests, it will point to the joke itself. So here they are: (ta da) The Best Joke of the month: The Worst Joke of the month: Back to Top = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports, the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. Again I will provide only the link, with the same comments on the link as in the Best Jokes section. My contribution of Humor from the Archives: = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Doug Harter, Traffic Reporter and Archiver Back to Top
