Memorandum 2

To all students with cute nicknames: The time to introduce these nicknames to me or to the class is not when you are in a desperate circumstance and need a special favor. The effort to portray yourself as a kitten or puppy by suddenly beginning to sign your e-mails “Mikey” or “‘Becca” is very transparent. Furthermore, it can cause confusion regarding your actual identity. Please use the names I already know.

Axé.

    I am deeply sorry that he chose not to use his college email account.

  2. Was this really a student??? Not a .bot???

  3. Yes, a student, currently enrolled, asking question about the in-class essay test scheduled for Monday.

    But I’ve met versions of your “Mikey” too –

  4. Z

  5. No. I have done nothing except to respond to the immediate question at hand.

    I went over email protocol in class at the beginning of the smester but…

  6. AHA – so did you decide to not answer his mail since it looked like spam from a porn site?
