Fair warning: it's a slippery slope.

"I already saw that" is NOT the way to respond when you get something via email

At least, not to me.

No one I know sends even a small fraction of the amount of email with links likely to be of interest to their recipients as I do.

It's not even close.

When someone sends me something they think I might be interested in, my response is "Thank you" regardless of whether or not I've seen it.

When you act all full of yourself and email me back "I saw that" after getting something from me that I took the time and trouble to send you and only you — because I never cc or mass email stuff — it makes me think, "Why bother?"

I go out of my way for you: be polite instead of letting me know that you're way ahead of me.

When someone gives you a present you already have, you don't say "Too bad, I already have one."

Do you?

If so, you're a loser IMHO.

You should say "Thank you."

Why would you crush the spirit of someone who went out of their way for you?

It's not only thoughtless, it's mean-spirited.

"I already saw that" — the next time I happen on something I know you'd be interested in that I'm certain you wouldn't otherwise see, I'll simply move on: nothing to email you about here.

What is it?

Ha ha ha

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: bigger than a bread box.

Another: it's real.
