One way a lack of self worth plays out in application development

there's no link
This is a little funny. The online support facility of some website requires that I turn off my spam filter, and if I can't, that I talk with someone who can. Now, I think two-thirds of the email I get at the address I gave them gets marked and quarantined as spam, with an amazing hit rate. I'm not going to turn that off.

But, I was tickled by the assumption that they'd probably be marked as spam. This is probably due to the support staff's loathing of the marketing staff -- they figure the latter'll get everything sent from their domain marked as spam. I'm not taking any of their steps, so we'll see how they do.
