Subject:RE: Why I like this list but not OT (long) From:"Humphries, Ola" <Ola -dot- Humphries -at- Energy -dot- Sungard -dot- com> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Tue, 12 Dec 2006 12:38:00 -0600
I normally read the first email only in a thread and then delete all others
(except for writers I know) if I don't want to pursue the topic further.
I read all the emails about the recent tragedy in Oregon and picked up some
helpful (if OT) advice about driving in hazardous conditions. I also read
most of the emails about interviewing techniques, since I may need to be
interviewed in the next few months.
Where I work, we do not converse at length at all and rarely ever about
things not work-related, so it's good to have some intelligent OT chat once
in awhile. I often click on links furnished by list members and save them in
my favorites sections.
My contract for this job ends on Thursday and I will unsubscribe for awhile.
I will miss this list and hope to be back someday.

Anyone else feel like they're being spammed? Opening emails purporting to
be about one thing (in this case, technical writing) that end up containing
completely off-topic and personal comments?
