So Mark, should I comment that you spelled "email" wrong in your signature? "eamil"

I didn't realize there was an "anti-shouting" device. I thought people were actually hitting the shift key at the beginning of every word. That Is What Bothered Me.

Isn't an ellipsis (aka: ellipse) also defined as an oval?

That would make a novel Board name: (For example: "Muddy Ellipsis").

Some Of Those Younger Guys Are Really Looking Good. I Feel It's Just About Time To Trade Jags. He's Make's Alot Of D-zone Mistakes. Biggest Thing, He Hasn't Produced Many Goal This Year. Dawes And Callahan Are Good Hard Working Rookies And They Can Score. Did You See The Game Where Ryan Hollweg Scored 2 Goals In The First Period. He Busts His Ass Every Game. I Like When The Checking Line Scores. Hope They Can Make The Playoffs. Perhaps If They Stay Out Of The Box.

Students displaying poor communication styles were often lacking in other areas as well. Regardless, I finally made a point of demonstrating what is and what is not a good method of communicating with people who have significant influence over something of high value (i.e. job, grade, admissions, etc.). I never took offense, but you know somebody has been fired or passed over, lost a letter grade, or otherwise suffered because they used text talk in the wrong setting.
Gets even worse when people start talking in text message short hand. Sadly they all worked together at a university.

yeah i'm hoping they start to click better now... they really have to get more consistent. yea jags could be holding them back a bit. i think he's taking ice time from some of the guys who could be more productive than him. i don't get VERSUS so i only get to see i suppose half of the games if i can catch em... i really have to get around to updating my cable! you go to any games? i'd like to get to a few.. have to get on that too!!

Sorry Mark,

I didn't mean any harm. I'm a geek . . .

Just giving you a hard time, I thought that was allowed around here.

P.S. You still spelled e-mail wrong, now you spelled it "e-maill". (Sorry, couldn't resist)
