Default Don't E-mail Me, I'll E-mail You

Got another e-mail today, in response to a post I made. I'll tell
you all yet once again - if you have a reply to a post, then make it in
the appropriate thread, don't e-mail me. ESPECIALLY, don't send me an
e-mail and don't bother stating it's by e-mail only - that's very rude.

There is a small number of people on the group I don't mind e-mails
from. They know who they are. If you're not sure if you're in that
group, chances are you aren't.

I'll admit publicly that it was me. I did so because I felt my comment
was not strictly on-topic for the group, and dealt specifically with
your posts.

I'll tell
you all yet once again - if you have a reply to a post, then make it in
the appropriate thread, don't e-mail me.


Given that not everyone knows about this preference of yours, perhaps
you might consider putting it in your sig so it shows up on every post?

ESPECIALLY, don't send me an
e-mail and don't bother stating it's by e-mail only - that's very rude.


As I mentioned privately, the message headers indicated that it was an
email and not copied to the group.

It's simple. JOAT wants to be ignored, but hates it when he doesn't get
any attention.

Do what I do. Betcha can't email me.


He may not be able to, on webtv. Which is probably why he stays with it.

Geez dude... it's just an email... get a grip. Long before there was a
WebTV everyone emailed everyone else about whatever the hell they
wanted. This was before "make $5,000 by 5pm" and "double the size of
your unit by 6pm" and "Dr Bungholi from Nigeria seeks your assistance
because he heard you were a man of worthy reputation". Back then we
were just damn happy to hear from people.

So, if someone from the group sends you an email that you're not
interested in dealing with... try this... just delete it :-)

I almost forgot. Besides having a WebTV, things I do not have,
include:
A cell phone.
An answering machine.
An IPod.or whatever the Hell it is.
A digital camera.
A satellite dish.
A stereo..
Any other of those irritating little gadgets.
A welcome mat.
A guest room.
A portable CD player.
A telephone in my truck.
A suit.
More than one pair of shoes.

And, I don't care.

All the other replies so far have been cool, and adressed the subject.

So, let me just say this: JOAT is cool. WebTV sucks. How someone is
able to find and post such great plans, yet be stuck in a sub-par
operating system, escapes me.

If I'm remembering correctly, there's an Internet service where you
can send yourself (or whoever) a delayed email. Submit the email and
when you want it delivered... in six months, a year, maybe longer.

What if she sent one of those? Just be sure you don't discard it and
if you do reply, be polite ;-)

Well first, calling WebTV an "operating system" is like calling a peep
show "getting laid".

That said, he's happy with what he has. It suits his purposes and it's
not "sub par" anything. If I want to drill a hole and a $15 hand drill
does the job for me and I'm happy with it, why would I want to go out
and buy a drill press? If ever he wants to do more, or break past the
limitations of WebTV I'm sure he'd dig deep and buy a shiny new
'puter.

Everyone needs more than one pair of shoes, or footwear, st least. Just
in case you step in something that shouldn't have been there.

Lordy, I do love this thread when it pops up again.

It is a sidereal phenomenon and is a precursor to the sure arrival of
another Robin's Butt thread.

I always enjoy those, too.

JOAT is a mainstay of the Wreck and, since he will not say it himself,
I will inform you that folks from his neck of the Carolinas only need
one pair of shoes - because they only wear shoes during the coldest
part of the year.

This would be from January 15 to March 1.

It would not be unlikely for a man to have one pair of shoes that he
used from the time of his birth until his inevitable insertion into
the Pineywood box.

That is why only size elevens are sold in that area. They are a tad
hard on the younguns but have a better's chance of being right on the
back end.


(watson - who has emailed JOAT but only in response - as he is a
respectful man.)

(watson - who is looking forward to the inevitable Robin's Butt
thread, even though Robin is getting along in years.)

Could be the fact that he's using webtv? I don't know much about it
nowadays, but you used to not be able to change your From: on webtv.

Close, but no ceegar. My present pair of shoes are actually size
13 wide wide. That's because my usual size, 8 1/2 EEEE was unfindable,
and the 13s were the only size I could find that were wide enough. I
got them in about 1997, and they're not very warn at all. They're only
worn outside, they're not house shoes. I'm thinking of buying another
pair tho, and store them, in case these wear out.


I had a cousin who lived in Willow, Alaska. Our family has a reunion
every two years. Many years ago, it was held in Sacramento, CA and his
two requirements were that I find a joint with Coors beer on tap and a
big man's store. He was a rather large person with 5 1/2 EEEEE shoe
size. One smartass offered to sell him the boxes. We finally found
something close in an Army surplus store. They were work shoes but were
black and had laces. He bought the last two pairs they had. The Coors
acually tasted good after that.

I also dislike getting a reply via the group AND email.

BTW, since you don't have a cell phone, I have a really nice cell phone,
along with a tab picked up every month by my boss.

It's yours for the asking! G
