Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, December 23, 2021

I’ve always suspected that the deluge of email gives time away from work a bit of a treacherous edge. Many professionals devise ways to cope with the mountains of messages that lurk in their inboxes after vacationtime is over

I’m glad I’m not the only one who dreads coming back to the office to find an overflowing inbox. Frankly, it’s impacted the way I take time off: Most of the time, I’d rather knock off on a Wednesday or Thursday, rather than come back after a three- or four-day weekend and find a couple of hundred pieces of spam to wade through.

And it is the spam that does it. Even with very stringent filters (which I noticed were bolstered over the past week, probably in anticipation of most people being out of the office), I still get at least 5-10 spams every night, and more on the weekends. I don’t have nearly that kind of problem with legit emails, even during non-holiday times.
