Worky Rant

I'm consistently amazed by the requests to be removed from mailing lists on campus. I just got a rather snotty message from someone saying that if I wanted to communicate with him that I needed to do it in a printed letter and to please remove him from the list.

Um... no? Oh no wait... Hell no.

Like I'm going to kill a bunch of trees to mitigate your self-importance?

Oh I'm sorry, did you not realize that this is a business email address and that your employer (who is providing that infrastructure) is entitled to send you messages about your job, your tools, and your workplace? Apparently not. Gotta love university life.

Please forgive me for writing this here. It's all in an attempt to avoid writing back to one of these dudes saying, "Dude, just delete what you don't want like the rest of us. Now shut the fuck up."


  • The urge would be strong to send a 'Brazil' sort of reply. Your request will be considered once you've filled out and mailed the proper form...
