I interpreted it as Curtis letting us/FFL know his potential travel plans, perhaps indirectly, in that he informed the group through a question to Barry, but no matter - he didn't add a specific prompt in the subject line to push that agenda. I enjoy hearing how other people's lives are unfolding and having never been to Majorca, I want to hear details, details man, details. Pictures, food descriptions, travel log or blog, or whatever, if he decided to go.
How many times does Share pose specific questions and responses to specific people on this public forum? Cracks me up every time - as if she doesn't want to hear feedback from whoever - as if she's worried that if she doesn't tailor the subject line, she won't be heard by who she wants to be heard by. And perhaps she won't - oh well. Those that follow this forum and the conversations don't seem to need personal prompts, at least in the past that was the case. Perhaps she should be emailing people privately? >________________________________ > From: authfriend <authfri...@yahoo.com> >To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com >Sent: Thursday, March 21, 2013 8:34 AM >Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: Majorca Spain > > > >--- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "curtisdeltablues" ><curtisdeltablues@...> wrote: >> >> --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "authfriend" <authfriend@> wrote: >> One would have thought you had Barry's email address.
