The Newbies Lament

The tune for this is 'There are worse things I could do' from the musical Grease.

There are worse things I could do, than to post with little clue
Even though all the old farts may flame and reach out for their LARTS
They are entitled to their view, but there are worse things I could do

I could spam without a care, get rich quick schemes everywhere
Just refuse to read the FAQ, put up everybody's back
With a blatant troll or two, that's a thing I'd never do

I could have a sig like War and Peace, quote whole posts without surcease
Write three hundred posts a day, throw your bandwidth all away
On an AOL 'me too'

I could flame someone like me, out of spite or pedantry
I don't swear and I don't SHOUT, I don't put ascii art about
My faults are relatively few
But admitting that I'm new, may be the worst thing I could do

hope you like it
