The March Consumer Reports has a page called “How to Win at E-Mail,” which struck me as odd: the only way to win, says the server looking over my shoulder, is not to play. Still, some of the statistics seemed valid, especially this one:
2 in 5 Americans have received email in the past year promising to enhance their libido or certain parts of their anatomy. (It annoys women more than men.)
I thought nothing annoyed women more than men; I know I’ve annoyed several.
But I understand why women object to this sort of thing, since the “certain part” most commonly specified is one they
genitally generally lack.
