Emails kinda matter like you are supposed to wear your badge on display at all times while in the building and official policy is everyone is supposed to report you if you don't but the loose defacto badge policy is some people give a crap and wear the badge visibly but others just put it in their pocket and nobody reports anybody because why would you?

Honest people post openly. Emails are for the many who fear to admit their conclusions. Or are trying to form one.

No, hard matters, actually hard is crucial.

No. I'm just noting the way the wind is blowing.
Hillary's email matters and Ivanka's email matters or Hillary's email doesn't matter and Ivanka's email doesn't matter.

As someone who has shitty email at work I get the frustration with using crap systems. As a rule follower I use the crappy system. If I were engaged in corruption like rigging elections or taking bribes, I'd have another reason to use an outside system

Free trade gamefully employs and enriches custom officers. With the current president, customs are only getting richer. Or playing more games.
