Carth: If something isn't important enough to read why is it important enough to save? I swear it is a form of digital hording that if TLC could make a show out of they would.
Boudyro: I "edit" for 5 weekly newspapers that each have their own e-mail, there is also a specific account that serves just for our columnists, as well as my personal and work accounts.I probably sift through more than a thousand e-mails in a given week most of which can be right clicked into oblivion. All but a handful require no response from me.
entropic_existence: Add me to the chorus of people who thinks this is bullshiat. I use two e-mail addresses. My work account (University) which is pretty good about catching the worst spam and that I don't use for private business, and my gmail account. Which I use for a mix of professional/private use. Gmail is also damn good at catching most spam so most of what I get are things I signed up for. If it isn't important or I don't need/want to read it I delete it. Everything else I either answer quickly, or set aside for follow-up later. Usually this is work related tasks that I can't get to right away.I want to know when I have new e-mail, and how much new unread stuff I have sitting there for me to look at. None of this 5,672 unread e-mails bullshiat.

Perhaps receive some sort of compensation for said writing?/would like to go back to my "roots"//and get the hell out of what I ended up in
meanmutton: Hey, I hear that HuffPo is always "hiring".

Boudyro: Sorry man can't help you. Most of our content is just whatever the community sends us via e-mail. Our writing staff consists of old folks who get a kick out of seeing their name in print. Basically we take whatever is freely given. There is very very very little journalism involved.
