I will choose to blame Twitter this time. I have noticed two strange  
phenomena in the past few months. The first is that from time to time  
people seem to regard email as sequential rather than as an  
asynchronous communication tool which has led to some rather bizarre  
conversations where people have elected to read emails from various  
points in a thread but as they have received them, and then responded  
as though they were sequential. The other seems to be like the sound- 
bite nature of Twitter where currency of the conversation rules and as  
a result there seems to be an apparent reluctance to search archives  
for previous postings, it's as though once an email has passed by it  
no longer exists or is no longer relevant.

Needless to say, perhaps, but the link to the archive is in the texhax  

Joan might notice that from the tenor of these responses she is not  
being regarded as a heretic. The issue is technological not  
ideological :)
