WHAT I HATE TODAY: Your daily dose of negative energy

Today I hate when people -- or, at any rate, their email applications -- delete previous emails when sending replies. I suppose they think they’re reducing clutter, but sometimes those previous emails contained important information, and anyhow there’s something oddly Stalinesque/Ministry-of-Truth-ish about erasing the past that way.

  1. Hee-hee. I do this all the time! I've probably done it to you. When I replay, I usually keep the e-mail I'm replying to in the text, but delete the previous exchange(s). I figure you know what you said... if you don't, you have a sent mail box.

    I hate it when someone forwards me an e-mail from someone else and I have to go all the way to the bottom to read the original e-mail... just give me the gist of what's going on and tell me what I need to do.
