The only thing about email that annoys me is spam. While I'm a subscriber to
freebsd-questions, top posting, incomplete questions, inflammatory
commentary, etc. is just the price I pay for getting a steady stream of
"Aha's," and hardly seems worth the effort to develop an emotional viewpoint.
Although "thought police" who say "do this" and "don't do that" wear me out
sometimes with their email.
