I don’t mean to be rude, but jeez people, use some common sense. Don’t put my email address in a huge list of “CC:” or “To:”. If I wanted those random strangers to have my email address, I’d write it on the fricking restroom wall. Your friends will now send me their viruses. Thanks.

Don’t forward me mail with random attachments of 500k or more. When I am out of town I use my cell phone for access and it runs at approximately 28kbps. If you send me a message with a meg of attachments, that means it will take me 5 minutes to download YOUR mail ALONE. Put them up on a webpage somewhere and forward me the link! And quit sending cutesy HTML mail with special backgrounds and fancy fonts and dancing kittens. I’m likely to send you back the code to show you what it looks like. Ugly, that’s what.
