For a large segment of us Internet Old-Timers, September of 1993 never ended. One of the eternal rhythms of the Internet used to be that every fall a new class of freshmen would enter college. It would take about a semester for these students to learn the ropes, pick up the "netiquette" and integrate into the culture of the Internet of the time.
That ended in Sept. 1993, when in short order, AOL, Compuserve, and Demon Internet all started allowing both email and USENET access. From that day on, the influx of clueless new users has been endless. It became impossible to instill proper etiquette or behavior... September went on forever.
Today is September, 7063 1993, the september that never ends.
