Like ZIP or RAR but implemented in people rather than software, or in fur if we take mattx's gerbils into account

    If I'm honest, I would only understand 70% of what you wrote if it were not for having the original message.

    Oh, and my pet hate? People who use "...." or ".." it's a proper glyph called an ellipsis and it has *three* dots!

    I'm getting irritated of late by people who seem to think that the word "not" needs to be written in upper case. On a notice or similar I can understand it, but in general prose of an email, I find it annoying and patronising.

    In that scenario I would assume they're shouting.

    "I will NOT tolerate... blah blah blah"

    They're having a go at you!

    Very nice Tom (Goes back to check my Sent Items to Tom to make sure I have been using three dots not more or less and my apostrophe's are correct )
