Each and every one of those 20,000 emails was exactly one page long.

That was the most informative article I've read all week.

You know how get 20000 pages of email? You keep replaying back and forth 100 times or so without deleting the original messages and have some page long "this email is intended for the addressed audience only" disclaimer appear every time you hit send.

This is the most STUPID not story of the past 3 days.
 
2012-11-14 09:39:25 AM
I wonder if their definition of one page includes this. ":-p"

I know it is highly inappropriate and I hope to be disciplined. ":-o"

If they were two separate e-mails, that would be 2 pages.

There is a reason why they are called "e" mail.

It looks like this is right on the money! From TFA:

U.S. Gen. John Allen reportedly sent 20,000 to 30,000 pages

THE 8 WORST CONVENIENCE FOODS

8. Meeter's Kraut Juice (Stokely USA): Yes, that's sauerkraut juice, which
is even worse than it sounds. The taste and smell can be a bit, well,
harsh, but KJ is reputed by its fans to have certain medicinal benefits
(as a source of vitamin C, cure for intestinal bugs, etc.), which adds up
to a classic case of the cure being worse than the disease.

7. Guycan Corned Mutton with Juices Added (Bedessee Imports): The best
thing about this Uruguayan canned good is the very pouty-looking sheep on
the package label -- he seems to be saying, "Go on, eat me already." The
second-best thing is the presence of both "cooked mutton" and "mutton" in
the ingredients listing, which would seem to have all the mutton bases
covered.

I'm sure every two-sentence email was printed off and counted as "one page" and every unsalacious email she was cc'd on was included (complete with the ungodly four-page cc line).

They should have photoshopped a long penis on that stack of paper.

Then it would have looked like 20,000 pages of inappropriate emails.
At least that's what my probation officer tells me.

I'm still disappointed that Jill Kelly isn't who I thought she was. I'm sure that the majority of the emails went something like this:

Hey, how come you look different on video than you do in person?

Sure, if you're an idiot who prints email.

The only 3 letter agency I am afraid of is the IRS. The rest will lock you up and give you a happy place... or simply have you killed. The IRS will take away everything you own in an instant and make you live in misery for an unspecified length of time.
 
2012-11-14 09:53:28 AM
I think that this comes out to 30 or so emails per day. Even if they are "what are you thinking about, sweetie?" or just a picture of someones junk, that's a frakload of emails.

Any bets the FBI guestimated these numbers the same way local law enforcement guestimates the street value of drug busts, or the way AT&T guestimates your data usage. It was probably only 20 or 30 pages of emails.

No, I'll say there are 20-30 thousand, but I'll bet 99.5% of them were e-mails sent in error because somehow, she wound up BCC'd on all his correspondence, and he didn't realize, and she didn't tell him, because she was getting juicy gossip. And I'll even go so far as to say the "inappropriate" stuff wasn't even sexual, but stuff that was "restricted release".

How many other dumb farkers the same age range are gonna get nailed for various things said on emails that should not have been said if they had been, like, READING THE FARKING NEWS?

You should have figured out the whole "emails are permanent" thing well before Wikileaks. And if Wikileaks wasn't the farking lights and sirens for you to wake up and pull yer head in, then.... the mind boggles how stupid they were.

I hate to be pedantic, but that is what 20,000 pieces of unprinted paper looks like. If there were text on all of those pages, the stack would be significantly taller. I just printed 6,770 letters the other day, and the printed letters took up the same amount of space as 20 reams of unprinted paper (10,000 pages).

/just sayin'

I find it hard to believe that ink takes up that much space. Maybe it's the shuffling the pages around, then stacking them back that makes them not so packed.

I bet it was like a couple of hundred emails (not an excessive amount over the period) but some of them had long attachments, which were counted. Remember, he helped testify for her sister in a court case, and some of those legal documents can be massive. Just a thought.

The content of the emails is what will make or break the general, not the number.
