Email Rejection One never could be too careful. Now we have to worry about evil coming in through our computers. I got a nasty cootie several years ago. So, the short story is, I now TOtally ignore my natural curiosity, and refuse messages from strangers. I do not need financial help, a new mortgage, bigger (insert body part), a date, a green card, a Visa card, pain relief, blue pharmaceuticals, or contact lenses. I have no interest in barnyard animals (except at the fair), cigarettes, or pictures of your girlfriend/naked wife. I do not open email from first name senders, unless their subject line has to do with doves, weddings, areas of personal interest, or an obvious response to one of my emails. I don€™t read mail with the subject lines: €˜Hi€™, €˜Remember me?€™, €˜About last night€¦€™, €˜Your inquiry€™, or any phrase containing the words €˜naughty€™, €˜coeds€™, or vague or blank subject lines. If you sent me a note and got no response, it may have failed the cootie/spam test. My ultra-capable website designer, Minderella(.com), has fixed me right up, so there should be no reason why I wouldn€™t, otherwise, receive and respond to your email in a timely fashion. So, if you feel you€™ve been overlooked, check what you sent, and please, please, please try again! In the meantime, bolster your own anti-cootie forces. Update your virus protection regularly. To arms! (P.S. Those of you with Yahoo!, etc., accounts, keep them tidied so when someone wants to send you the newest, coolest photo of their doves, there will be room to accommodate it. ‘Kay? Thanks! Love ya! Mean it!)
