i've spent a fair amount of time sitting next to
isky. your take is different from mine. no one asks
isky's permission to use the computer; where did you
get that idea (did you make it up)?
that it seems isky only posts email concerning
his own needs seems a pretty good use of the email,
it doesn't show involvement with other email issues,
but email is only one medium, one that some avoid
for obvious reasons.
