All of that, but most importantly, if you're communicating with
someone who is tech savvy to some degree, it just looks dumb. It's
close to the class of people who send something wrong, then follow up
with a 'retraction' message. I laugh and file the message away! It
brings to mind the person who sends a 'get stuffed' letter in the
post box to break off a relationship, only to find out later they
were mistaken and tries to figure out how to intercept the letter
before it gets delivered. Lots of good comedy in that, but electronic
mail isn't close to being in the same class.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
