Some of you folks out there request information and then your e-mail address
isn't good when I try to apply.

If you request information please have a valid return address.

Thanks, Rollie

Rollie,  I at least think the e-mail addy is going to be put into the post
as yours is at the top of this message by the computer program that you (and
I ) happen to be using.   So I would not think that I would need to add it
in the body or the signature of the message.

Re: Why no e-mail Address


I used the message I sent to the NG and sent a testing post only to me.  The
the post hasn't shown up yet.  And the only thing it had in the address box
was my name.  So apparently there isn't an addy "implied" in the name to
send it where it needs to go.   Hhhmmmm, have to remember that when I send
my son e-mails.   His name alone might not be enough.    But it is plain
from the lines at the top of this post that when it is sent to the group the
proper e-mail addy is attached.

Were you trying to respond to me?   If not to me then at least Joy has a
fake addy displayed at the top for some reason.   Privacy?  Prevention of ID
theft??????

Well, if it was me you wanted up there is my addy.
I'll be home all day though maybe not on the computer.

Well,  it did go back to me.   Just not here in the newsgroup.   It went to
my regular e-mail addy.   Which is actually what it shows up top there.

Re: Why no e-mail Address
You should just respond on group (which is proper USEnet etiquette),
and the OP can read your response there.  E-mail addresses are not
required on USEnet, and usually just fill with spam if provided.

It's good manners to reply on-group. Others may be interested in your
reply.

Uh-uh! I stopped including a 'computer useable' (= spam harvester) email
addie with my NG reader quite a long while ago. I was collecting anything
between 50 to 100 spam emails a day.
 
I do, however, include a 'human translatable' addie in my sig.

Maybe because this is a Usenet group and the replies are supposed to be
sent to the group?  It is generally considered rude to post here and ask
for replies to solely be sent by email, after all.

Spot on Melinda.....it also prevents the spammers with email collecting
software from adding you to their list.
