Perhaps this may help :

Some afper posts are bad
They can really make you sad
Other posts just make you swear and curse
When your'e downloading afp gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best
Always tag your posts on a f p
Be it [I] or [R] or possibly [C]
If replies seem jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to stop and choose your words with care
Don't end up being flamed
Or killfiles at you aimed
Just lurk a little, then you'll post with flair
Always tag your posts on a f p
Be it [F] or [R] or possibly [C]
For we all are quite absurd
What ? You hadn't heard
But occasionally discuss the Discworld with some grace
Keep your postings trim
Give the audience a grin
Enjoy it :-) It's a very friendly place
Always tag your posts on a f p
Be it [F] perhaps[A] ? or possibly [C]
