Thank you so much. Please stop age-generalisation now? It's not funny. We're
not all "old fogies".
I'm too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up, and I was born in
'86. I've never owned an answering machine in my life, and neither have my
parents. I know who Mork was - and Mindy, too.
I thought very carefully before composing this email. I walked around the
room half a dozen times counting to a hundred. Yet somehow, I'm still
irritated by this forward. Please don't.
