Re: your mail

Hi Brian,

I know other people have posted about this, re almost getting fired.
Many companies now are adopting "new" rules regarding employee's posting
on listserves. The policy here is that employees must get another
address through aol or yahoo or some other free mailserve if they want
to participate in listserve discussion. The reason is spam, supposedly.
My boss knows I post here, and he doesn't care that I use my work mail
address. I'm smart enough to deal with spam myself. (at least he thinks
so ;)

The point is, that there are many companies now, at least in the Wash
metro area, that are requiring employees to use an alternate mail
address for any listserves they participate in. 

Hope this sheds more light on the subject.
