For the love of Jah when you respond to an e-mail do not reply all or cc all the addressees. This is pure harassment by the reply aller. You are the internet version of a telemarketer. Oftimes the the people you're replying all to don't even know you. Stop in the name of all that is good and merciful.

Edit: So the sinner who evoked the blog wrath of an angry Jah, my sister, just got buck with me on the internets (I never thought I'd say this, but, "word to Dubya!"). Anyway, here is the (edited) conversation which started when I sent a few friends and family members a link to a tragicomic post by TAN on a New York Observer article discussing the percentage of people of color employed in major New York media outlets (virtually none) vs. the percentage of people of color in New York city (damn near evrybody):
Quoting Jalylah:

Why A POC might kill himself for a byline.

Anyway in the future don't read Gawker 'cause they suspect. I called them on a MODERATED comment (commenters are registered and limited in number) on their site which referred to Kimora Lee Simmons as a "jungle barbie." At last check they refused to acknolwege my complaint or remove the comment.

love you anyway,
I'm using my brilliant sis' (double ivy league degreed and working on a third) as an example because she can't excommunicate me (blood is thicker than water) but many of you, my dear friends, have done the same and dammit I want you to stop. And I'd like to state for the record that I was Spelling Bee Champ in the 3rd grade. Shout out to Mrs. Tracy and the whole of Sand Point Elementary.
