somewhere in the depths of Adam's FoRK FAQ,
lovingly maintained at

               ( from Ernie) FoRK is a virtual community. A community
                defined, in this case, as
               a group of people who jointly share some finite resource
                for a common end The
               resource in this case being attention span and mailbox
                windows, the end being
               increased bits. (see also, FOuR Koans, or "What are the
                rules of FoRK?")

Commandment 2: Thou shalt forward only new bits. Most humor is not new
               bits; if you forward old bits to FoRK, you must pay the
                penalty of finding new bits
               within 24 hours, or suffer the fate of being tagged a
                97%er by your peers.

(the 97% thing being my least favourite thing about FoRK culture, but
that's another rant...)
