So. What does Patrick think of all this brouhaha?
I deal with many people only via e-mail. My training sez that :-) and little
gimmicks can't be counted on. Since we can't see the sender of a message
that what we write is what the receiver sees. Putting an emoticon at the end
of something that could be offensive or taken in a different manner than it
was intended isn't a good idea. What if the receipient gets ticked and
doen't finish the message or the emoticon comes out
) because their email garbles it.
Time to move on though. I need a summer camp location for two people next
summer. Our Lone Scout unit has only two scouts. It needs to have mess hall
dining, be beautiful, sleepable at night (cool), and fairly devoid of
skeeters. A good 14+ program is necessary and it must be open in July. It
can be anywhere in the U.S.
Nominations can be sent by reply.
