I had a query and needed an answer pronto
I have an email group that reaches from Beijing to Toronto
People are real smart on that group and mostly help
Let me write an email and then sit back and delve
In my hurry and my enthusiasm
I made mistakes, kind of electronic spasms
CC-ed the wrong email list and now that is done
My query is unresolved but my e-ordeal just begun
Responder A says “too many links dude”
Are you on the payroll, or are you just rude
Responder B says “ you cant win too many pals”
By Emailing academics about corporate stalls
Responder S was the best, he said this is spam
With my e-reputation in tatters, I did a face-palm
Apologized, sent feel good notes, but people were still angry
Maybe they get too much spam daily, and now they get a chance to vent on me
Spam is the enemy, unwittingly I helped create.
And the nice (and verrry big) email group can sometimes be provoked to hate.
Sorry Guys, I promise to be careful when I write
Can you answer my question, or do you still want to fight?
