    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.
