Being the paragon of patience and all that is virtuous, I was perfectly fine with stomaching a few emails every few days or so, but even my virtue has its limits. When I’m getting emails every few hours from the same person who is not my immediate family or girlfriend or even my favourite Nigerian scammer, it’s hard to be understanding. Sure, some of these emails are extremely useful and I can’t doubt that, but it’s apparent that it’s about Directly Unproductive Posturing and presenting a side of yourself we all know you never had, ie. friendly, unselfish, popular, concerned about people other than yourself. It’s dramatically ironic, though not very funny.
