  • To those I have ignored

    In trying to catch up with the email that accumulated during my recent internet outage I discovered a shocking number of emails that I never responded to. Some of these are almost a year old. All of them were cases of "I don't have time right now, so I'll flag it and get to it later", then I didn't and forgot about them.

    I feel badly about this, but in my own defense I doubt anyone would be able to keep up while still maintaining hobby status. Perhaps I could handle it in a more professional matter, but mostly it's a case of not wanting to reply with "sorry, I don't have time to walk you through the restoration of your image" or "sorry, but this isn't a good image for Challenges" or "sorry, but what you're looking for is quite impossible" get the idea. I guess I just don't like telling people "no", so I just don't say anything at all.

    I'll try to do better, but I just wanted to post this in case you're one of the ones still eagerly waiting for a reply. If this was a business my behavior would be ruinous, but even as a hobby it's still rude. I apologize, and I wish I could say it will never happen again, but it inevitably will.

    I guess all I'm saying is don't take it personally if I don't respond to your email.

    Oh sure... <sniff> okay. We understand. <sniff, sniff> You just don't love us anymore! We've been waiting forever... sitting at our computers, staring at the screens until our eyes shrivel dry, hoping that someday Doug will talk to us. <sniff, sniff>

    You're human! None of us want to be the bearer of bad news. And I think all of us here understand how you feel.

    What can we say -- we love ya!
