Communing online can be so worthwhile...even when you have to point someone else to an auction of that rare Beanie Baby. And ancient coins? Forget it! But you smiley-face anyway, because it's "Netiquette." Bad online manners can haunt you with an online coin dealer worse than a bad Indian or wheat penny. Remember, on a mailing list, you don't know who might be reading!

When you're on a quest for that perfect Justin II Follis Nikomedia Byzantine coin, remember to be polite. Your Beanie Baby competitor may outbid you on that bear, but she will probably return the favor by referring you to the rare coin dealer and ancient coin dealer she uses, with a "TTFN" (that's Ta-ta for now) and a Caesar smiley face. Great Caesar's Ghost, look at the Web site--your Beanie Baby friend is the coin dealer in question! Isn;t cyberspace grand?
