<< Politics can easily get out of hand on email. It's one of
the things I try to nip in the bud on this list. Please avoid even the
harmless asides; they have a way of getting bigger.
Religion too, no doubt (speaking as a determined atheist).
The trouble is, with everything in life from politics and religion to sport,
relationships and (dare I say it) irises and gardening - we **all** see
ourselves as armchair experts!
And of course, once one becomes an "expert", one believes oneself to be
"always right" (sorry - too many "ones" - I sound like Prince Charles!).
