E-mail is a Dangerous Tool - Beware! Beware! Beware!

Law is Cool discusses the ridiculous behavior of inexperienced and experienced lawyers (I have no doubt it extends to all professions) when it comes to the inappropriate use of e-mail in this post "Legally Rude Jerks of the Web".  While  the actual story is an older one, the message remains relevant today as more and more people are on the internet.

In this e-mail exchange, a law job recipient chooses to decline a job offer via e-mail and the exchange is incredibly embarassing on both parts.  What's worse?  I think the new lawyer declined the offer to go solo and this introduction to the legal community is digitzed in perpetuity. Not a way to enter the legal world in general, certainly not as a solo.

You can read my thoughts on the perils of e-mail here and here.
