Thanks that was interesting and sane. I guess I should blog my own  
comments on this article. I really only became successful in school  
with email available because I could focus in email on course  
material rather than dropping in on offices where thoughts are  
incomplete and partial.

I think some of these rules discussed are only variations on email  
etiquette that everyone should read about before writing email.
