E-mail considered harmful

To paraphrase a famous saying in the field of programming, “GOTO’s considered harmful,” I want you to know that, going forward and in the spirit of “Full Public View,” and in an attempt to see if blogging can be used as an alternative to e-mail, I plan respond to any e-mail you send my way motivated by the words you find here as follows:

  • I’ll most likely just ignore it;
  • If I decide you sent it without not knowing my philosophy, I will either ignore it or will reply and say, “Read my blog;”
  • If I decide you know of my philosophy but sent it anyway, I will either ignore it or publish it here in full public view.

This policy is in effect starting now.
