Through Lifehacker today, I came across an article entitled "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People With Email - Pt. 1," and it quite honestly made me chuckle. If I had a penny for each email I've received that violates the "rules" that Bert lays out...well, I probably wouldn't have to look for a job anymore.
If you, like many, tend to receive emails that break these "rules" from so-called friends, feel free to pass it along to them as a "friendly reminder" of how not to drive other people bonkers.
If you're one of those people that tends to send these sorts of emails...well, take a hint please.
