What's with? I looked at the FROM line in the header and it said the sender
of the rude question was Mary Anne Donovan Wentworth. Then the message is
signed T. M. Wright. Who is the message from? Is T.M. the vituperative alter
ego of Mary Anne? Or did someone post this in hopes of getting another person
into some kind of flame war?
To answer: No, being anal gets in the way of communication only when your
cranial communication link is lodged firmly in your rectal aperture, thereby
effectively shielding your signal receptors.
