You mean that words you share with others might actually tell them a bit about yourself?

You don't say?

Next thing you know, people will tell you that how you speak and act in public says a lot about your personality...

Peki: I type 98+wpm, so I never learned macros like $NAME. I just type it out each time.


This should become the new "I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes".

In case you are serious: it's 2013. Nearly everyone is an excellent typist these days, because computers.

What does it say about the person who uses this as their Outlook stationery?

Yes, every email. Yes, the font is Comic Sans as well.

*boggle*

It's not a macro; it's a way of expressing a variable and it's shorter than something like "Hello [recipient's name goes here]" in an example.

But congratulations on being a fast typist, I guess.

SoupJohnB: Lady J: ive recently been dealing with someone at work who required a read receipt for every single email.

it made me quite irrationally annoyed

Talk about annoying, I was working for a large government agency when they rolled out a new, "enterprise-wide" email system.  Some official at the central hub would send out an agency-wide announcement, and the way it functioned at first, any yahoo in the field could send a pointless "reply all" response.  Which would set off a flurry...

"Due to the Federal holiday, payday will be on Thursday."

"That reminds me, I need to get some decorations for Timmy's birthday party"

"Hey, you hit reply all"

"Yeah, stop that"

"Everybody STFU!" etc.


I worked for a company that used these events to figure out who to lay off. -it's quite effective at giving you a list of idiots actually.

farkinoffdsm: People still use email outside of work? Who knew?

/can't be bothered
//put it in a Txt or stfu


As a general rule, anyone who sarcastically ask "People still do X?" are asshats.  You might be an exception, but I'm not betting on it.

That's why you put agency wide email addresses in BLIND copy (BCC).  That way no one can hit that button.

/Tricks, I has them.

I can tell alot about people by their e-mail as well. But I use bigger signs like idiots that use backgrounds, weird fonts, bad signatures, stupid PS signatures like the don't print guy and the unintended recipient guy. Salutations and whatnot I notice as all, as in the work place it's unprofessional. I also hate text some e-mailers. Please use full sentences, punctuation, and grammar.
