Why Gmail is a handy-dandy application

Because if you have your mailbox set to show snippets, you can scan the first line of an email from a potential client that reads, "Thanks for your interest in the project ..." and know that it's a rejection email even before you click on it.

I'm sure this applies to many other forms of bad news sent via email.

Hi! My name is Shao, Junping and I'm not here to flirt with you. "I'm sick of" Singaporeans (e.g. Tym, pronounced, "like", tumor?) blatantly but subconsciously playing the part of America's minor to-the -eighth-power-of-ten bitch, "but still". The symptoms: 1)use of inane blogospherisms like "but still", "tired of", "sick of", "having to (do something)", "I suppose" 2)arbitrary use of rationalistic numbering systems in your exposition. 2.5)use of hyphens to connect words by fiat 3)tumouric overuse humourless irony like me.

Please install an Americanism checker in your web browser.

4)Why can't you be at least virulently anti-American like our old Dominatrices the Brits, if you can't afford self-respect. "Like", take up a real art "or something".
"Besides" Writing/Blogging/You Piece of Turd.

5)Have You Realized That We Are Genetically Alcohol/Milk Intolerant.
Why don't you marry someone of the northern european breed in order to improve our gene lines and increase our bukkakic experience points? "Wait", it was overheard that such enzymes are passed through the mitochondriac DNA of the mother.

6)Would you like to sue me for libel/sexual harassment in the great tradition called Anglo-American-Bourgeois? "I mean", Your Style?

7)I would like to maintain my right to freedom of speech, as a Vassal of The Great Red, White n' Blue Empire.

8)I "stand accused" of narcissism, the embittered strain thereof.

I used to work for the National Heritage Board, which overseas the Archives. It's really a treasure-trove of info, but too bad it's under-utilized. I'm glad you are not only using it, but also blogging about it...
