Newb Ocean Elf: Lol This is cute.

present-time Ocean Elf: *Groans* This is STALE!

The mangle



🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes*

😏Meme: Thou shalt include a clear and specific subject line.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: What, Such as "PLEASE READ AND PASS ON!" Right? Gah.

😏Meme: Thou shalt edit any quoted text down to the minimum thou needest.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Can't always be done. Yahoogroups emails won't let me do that.

😏Meme: Thou shalt read thine own message thrice before sendest it.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nope, once is enough... And I really don't like this KJV-speak.

😏Meme: Thou shalt ponder how thy recipient might react to thy message.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If you do that, you wouldn't send chain letters.

😏Meme: Thou shalt check thy spelling and thy grammar.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um isn't that already covered in the above about reading it "thrice"?

😏Meme: Thou shalt not curse, flame, spam or USE all CAPS.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, um, tell the other shouting viral creators to lose the upper-case then.

😏Meme: Thou shalt not forward any chain letter.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: ROTFLOL Considering this IS one, it kind of outs itself, doesn't it?

😏Meme: Thou shalt not rely on the privacy of email, especially from work.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Why not from work? Anyway, yeah, look, I'll keep email between me and those I respect. People who send me unwanted flaming junk don't get to have their emails remain private.

😏Meme: Thou shalt not use email for any illegal or unethical purpose.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: DUH!

😏Meme: When in doubt, save thy message overnight and reread it in the light of the dawn.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, um, got anything else to suggest that hasn't already been done?

😏Meme: And, the Golden Rule of email: That which thou findest hateful to receive, sendest thou not unto others.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, you might want to tell that to the spammers, yourself included!

Email Commandments Vol. 2, Work Edition never forwarded by me, mangled!
