Some Reasons Why You May Not be Getting Responses #general


Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I know this has been touched on before by some other genners on this list, but it
bears repeating.

Subject Line:
"Help" just doesn't cut it. Be more precise.What kind of help do you want or need?
If you want help in finding grandpa Joe Blow then write that in the subject line,
such as Looking for Grandpa Joe Blow, or Can't find Grandpa Joe Blow. Without more
definition many folks are inclined to just delete your message without bothering
to read it. Who knows? The one person who has your answer may just have deleted
your message....

Spam Fighters:
I read more and more often that people no longer bother to go into the required
"site" and go through the rigmarole of typing into it the required password for
you to be able to
get our answers. Among other things it means that if we are not on the web and
only connected to our email provider, as I am now, we have to go onto the web to
answer you instead of just a quick individual reply. More and more people as I've
said above just don't bother.

Help us to help you.

Joanie
