Apologetically, a new e-mail policy: I try to at least skim each e-mail I get, and until now, I’ve been trying to respond to each, since not responding to an e-mail has always felt rude to me. I’m afraid, though, that I’m getting so many messages that I have to reluctantly stop responding to most of them. I sincerely apologize for that — as I said, it feels rude to me, even with this announcement. Still, if I’m to keep blogging (and to keep actually doing real work, too), I think this is what I have to end up doing. So please forgive me if you send a message and receive no response — and please do keep sending messages, since many of them end up being fodder for future posts. Sorry, and thanks for reading.
