As I pondered the fallout of the EDTA, colored water and litterite (I like this
term George) issues, I remembered some advice given to me several years ago by
a coworker when I was regretting the effects of a strongly worded memo that I
had written in anger.
His advice to me was that in the future, I should write the memo while I was
still angry, but then sit on it for a day. The next day, read the memo over
again, and if you still feel the same way, then send it. I have followed his
advice since then and it has prevented me from sending quite a few nasty memos
and emails. More often than not I have toned down the original message.
I would like to suggest that the members of the list consider doing the same
when something prompts them to send a strongly worded reply. I think we will
Sorry for the lecture, hopefully I haven't offended anyone.
