'Automated' greetings (ones that you don't write in manually/by hand) miss
the point of common courtest and politeness, I think. I have seen people who
do this and it feels too 'mechanical', so to speak.

You didn't like my *emotion* tags either. As I always say, emotions have
become heavily associated with children who chat. Same with SMS, MySpace,

Best wishes,
