Read this story from the Boston Globe about a recent law graduate who declined a job by email. Her would-be employer chided her, also by email. Emotions escalated, and the final email was a short one from the graduate: "bla bla bla."
Soon the exchange was traveling around the world at the speed of – well – email. Have you ever sent an email you would rather not see in a newspaper? Enough said.
Thanks to Betsy McKenzie for pointing out this story at Out of the Jungle.
