The fact that many of you, including the moderators, don't understand why these are genuinely serious issues that need to be treated carefully just shows how unqualified you are to be giving this advice (or moderating the giving of it)… [more]

We do encourage people to treat AskMe as a place to find definitive answers. The mods do. Isn't the basic guideline that posters must have a question to be answered or a problem to be solved? I think the analogy you're making is a little… [more]

I've been bent out of shape about the war for years now. I picked up William Sloane Coffin's book of sermons and essays called The Heart is a Little to the Left and read it over and over for a few months. The pieces are really short, but they talk… [more]

There's a hacky way to do this. Put the emails she gets from these people into a "folder," meaning tag them all in some way. This could be as easy as a tag like "weekonefriends" or something. Go into that tag/folder. Select… [more]
