Very cool.

"A few professors said they had rules for e-mail and told their students
how quickly they would respond, how messages should be drafted and what
types of messages they would answer.
Meg Worley, an assistant professor of English at Pomona College in
California, said she told students that they must say thank you after
receiving a professor's response to an e-mail message.
"One of the rules that I teach my students is, the less powerful person
always has to write back," Professor Worley said."

Go, Meg!

Wow! There's a name I haven't seen for *ages*! Every now and then we
get a thread going about some long time posters we don't hear from
anymore. <sigh>

I used to enjoy the email asking me if I said anything important in a
missed lecture. I usually responded by saying I never say anything
important in the classroom. I'm only there to keep the students off the
streets.

My lectures were 80 minutes long. Sometimes I informed the student that
since I type more slowly than I talk it would take quite some time to
tell them what they missed via email. I'd invite them to my office for
a private lecture. Nobody took me up on that one.

I remain happily retired and derelict,

LOL! I'm going to pass the article and your comment to my husband,
Dave. He had mail from a student a couple weeks ago where the student
was, in essence, wanting Rob to do the homework problem for him. (And
he retired TO teaching. :-)

I was interviewed in an arizona newspaper once for a web project I was working
on. I was completely misquoted and they made me sound like some cocky, uppity
bitch. I was so irritated.

When one calls a company a recording often says "This call may be
recorded (for some bogus reason)." I wish those recording things were
easier to come by and use for the rest of us.

I also find it discouraging to hear that newspapers won't run
someone's words by them before printing them.

What? You want them to give you a chance to retract what you said
before they blatt it all over their medium? OTOH, I guess I was
lucky. When the fellow from the Boston Globe interviewed me, he got
all my quotes right.

Meg is the one who always ended her posts"rage away"
I liked that.

I like her comment about properly formatting your e-mail. Especially
the part about the balance of power and thank you notes!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Sue.<g>

>>>Go, Meg!


I often quote something she emailed me, once, regarding "bad love
interests":

"Any woman without at least one horror story in her past is a total coward."

Oh gawd..I was not a coward, but maybe a fool.... Probably more than
once or twice. But I don't regret it..
