Aah, someone else who feels exactly as I do about one liners.
As the owner of a mail server myself and some small lists, I totally
understand.
Why do people feel it necessary to be damn right lazy and treat mailing
lists as if it's some sort of instant messaging client, writing such
bullcrap as, lol, or yes, or thanks?
OK thanks is great and all, but at least fill the rest of the line up with
something meaningfull.
I hate that. In fact no, I dispise it. When you get so much mail in one
out of 5 mail boxes and the subject line might prove interesting, and all
the message says is, wow!
You tend to get a little bit pissed off? Well I do.
