anybody the right to rag about others' correspondence style, really?
If you are doing individual emails between friends, no one really, IMO,
other than your friends. And I do have a friend I've taken to task
about his random method of replying to emails, especially as it pertains
to our efforts to start a business.
But this is not email amongst friends. This is group of individuals
trying to communicate and share information.
In any group, you have to have a set of rules everyone must follow if
the group is to function successfully. It doesn't matter if the group
is a car club, church group, management structure of a company, local
government, examples could be almost limitless.
When folks choose not to follow those rules, the system breaks down and
less gets accomplished.
Forums are a good example of this. Ever read the last message in a
forum, then spend15 minutes searching for the message the last poster
was replying to? Or, read a long post, and want to try to sort things
in that post chronologically when some people have top posted, some have
bottom posted, and others have interspersed? :-) Personally, I've
got better things to do than scroll back and forth through jumbled posts
and long forum threads, which is why I don't use forums on a regular
basis. They waste my time.
Which is easier to search through, a filing cabinet where everything is
organized by some system, or a filing cabinet where everything is just
tossed in the drawer? If everyone in a group, like this newsgroup, does
whatever they want, you have example two of the filing cabinet.
