Message:  A while back a man sent me an email asking for some information on our house's original owner as he was related. I sent what I had and for some reason he put me on his family mailing list.

From then on I started getting family communications which included a really good one. His daughter was doing a contract in Radio Broadcasting in Australia as an intern. She unknowingly insulted a Native Australian Aborigenie (sp) and was given extra work to do beyond her contract. She wrote her father to get his opinion as an attorney.

His response was something like this: Dear Daughter, you had 23 spelling errors, 12 punctuation mistakes, 17 Lower/upper case errors and 11 incomplete sentences and several that ran together into compound sentences. Other than that the ending was fine (Love Pat). When you make all of these corrections so that the message is readable I will be happy to give you my best advice. Love, Dad.

Now that is a great response. I don't mind reading a few mistakes, but if there are too many I go on to something else.
