A plea for email addresses
Just a side note -
Unbeknownst to everyone else, I use firstname.lastname@example.org on all my email lines.
...ponders meaning of "regular" posters.
Uncle Philo....I will if you mention me in your will :-)
I hope this isn't so unka Philo can take us aside and slap us on the wrists without embarrasing us in front of our cousins.
[pondering Mrs. Philo's reaction to 'and a big shout out to Code Monkey' at the reading of my will...]
Won't matter, you'll be dead anyways. What's she gonna do?
Women can inflict pain beyond the grave.
I haven't been DEAD lately either ...
The upside of including your email address is that you get nice emails from Philo (...Don't think I have gotten one yet, what's the deal with that?...)
Does the netiquette require answering to emails received off-board?
So, who got the email from Philo and what was that about? Cookies?
Aussie, don't call his bluff. You just never know......
I've had the same basic experience as Aussie Chick. Filling in the "Email:" box will mostly result in rude, anonymous comments from idiots.
Or maybe they will be used by the Microsoft Marketing Machine. Who does Philo work for now? Hmm... part of the vast conspiracy!
Philo emailed me once. Called me a recycler.
The email on this post is fake
I remember trying to email Philo privately once, except that he was in the habit of using an old, obsolete email address.
Actually it wasn't an obsolete email address, it was a lesson in never letting a .org domain lapse, otherwise you have to teach the domain registrar how to reenable it.
I've received a nasty e-mail or two, a handful from Phlio, and a few
"Women can inflict pain beyond the grave."
People should put their email on their posts, otherwise Philo will be forced to randomly email someone later on and attribute the prior post to them. :-) I got one such email that had something to do with Electrical Engineers or something (I think it might have been meant for Atkins).
Man, I *do* have massive problems with attributing concepts/quotes to the wrong people. Over the last year or so I've been working hard to verify who said what and when, but old habits (post now, think later) die hard.
Occasionally I get mail. Recently I had one offering to have Christianity explained to me, I refused, politely I hope.
I don't email people unless I feel it is too off topic for the msg board.

You want nasty emails, make a comment that might be considered to reflect on Macs occasionally.
How come I never get rude, anonymous comments from idiots. I tried so hard.
Just me (Sir to you)
Idiots never send rude anonymous comments to their own kind; they feel a kind of primeval solidarity.
The only two people to ever email me off this board are Bella and Joel.
"Idiots never send rude anonymous comments to their own kind; they feel a kind of primeval solidarity."
Just me (Sir to you)
I've decided to not only add my email address, but try to cut back on my smartass comments.
