HEY ARSEHOLE: STOP SENDING ME ANGRY EMAILS

Help for the tone deaf

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Been a while since I received an ANGRY EMAIL – and been never since I sent one in return. I do my SHOUTING in person.

My advice to ANGRY EMAILERS is this: don’t write drunk, arsehole. But if you must, and you lack all self control, check out this anger-o-meter. It may save you from shame, lost friends, lost jobs and found lawsuits, down the line.

Called ToneCheck, this Outlook plug-in 'identifies and flags "emotionally charged sentences in your email message". Just like a spellchecker for ARSEHOLES.

The developer, a Canuck firm called Lymbix – tagline: E-mail lives forever. Prevent flame wars and litigation with ToneCheck - cites research that email messages are interpreted incorrectly half the time. In other words, even if you don’t mean to be PISSY, your CRAP WRITING SKILLS REALLY GET UP PEOPLE'S NOSES.

Tonecheck is in beta and is free on a 30-day demo. You can play with it to see how OFFENSIVE you undoubtedly are.

Bootnote

You smell and you have no friends.

Just saying. ARSEHOLE.
