HEY ARSEHOLE: STOP SENDING ME ANGRY EMAILS
Help for the tone deaf
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.
You smell and you have no friends.
Just saying. ARSEHOLE.
I'll do it for a few quid. I bet a few other fellow commentards would, too. Just check our posting histories for references.
PS WHY IS THIS STORY IN REGHARDWARE? IT'S GOT JACK TURD TO DO WITH HARDWARE YOU HALF-WITTED ASSCLOWN. GOD THIS SITE SUCKS. UTTER SHITE, REG!
Unintended side effects
I don't think this is the first such system. We had something similar at a place I once worked at, which gave you a score of 1 to 5 on how offensive an email was before giving you the option to send or retract it.
Rather predictably in a standard UK office environment, within 5 minutes this deteriorated into a contest to see who could send the most offensive email and hit the magic top score.
CRY ME A RIVER EMO KID
What, you're saying the outhouse lusers don't need help? Or that they're beyond help? Oh well, carry on then.
