On Email

I try to be as accurate I can. But meanwhile e-mail has become a diffuse medium and gets increasingly time-consuming, especially when I have to earn my living with a job involving a lot of teaching.

I usually have no time investigating how much of a message I received was written by a human thinking specifically of me, and how much is left to a (brainless) automaton, which spreads similar messages to how many hundreds or thousands of others. In some cases I have replied (and please keep in mind that I always use my own brain and my own time when composing my messages!), but nothing followed, suggesting that my effort got lost down some conveyor-line process.

With this in mind, please understand that I restrict myself to absolutely important and serious exchanges, and the below instructions are meant to increase your chance of getting a reply (or any other type of reaction, if you expect one) -- and not to upset or bother you and to justify that I am particularly arrogant or unpleasant.

In any case, I can try to help you, but only if not put against a machine.

Thank you very much in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,
