I really really hate it when people include "Regards" and "Joe Bloggs" as part of their email signature.

It turns what sould be a couple of simple back and forth comments (like a IM via email) into some wierd passive agressive exchange. You know the formality of the salutation is fake because it's on everything but it pisses you off all the same, you dont feel free to be be funny or offhand either like you would on an IM.

It's like the signature is deliberately setting the tone of the exchange.

hate it, hate it hate it.

I also hate people who mail in plain test and turn your sig into a pile of attachments every time thay reply - hate this too.






Regards,

Mormon.

The views expressed in this email do not reflect those of a real human being. Washingcattle is a charachter developed by commitee of malcontents in a lab with no windows or comfortable seats beneath a bowling alley which has several posters of page three models with the tits burnt off and smells slightly of piss and gone off feta cheese. He should not be taken seriously by anyone under any circumstances.
