A few weeks ago i attempted to send out an email to everybody .... what a complicated mess. So there are lots of ways to do this. And I spotted one I had not tried before: PM everybody. I tried it. It had a lot of problems I didn't anticipate.
And then a lot of folks sent me PM's back for one thing or another.
At this moment, I finally caught up on my PM's (I think). I currently have 6961 unread emails in my box. And I am trying to get caught up.
The fact of the matter is that I far prefer email over PM.
