84. EOM is end of message and this is how it's meant to be used

I was going to be clever and put EOM on the title and just leave the body blank but I decided to be more clear and less clever.

People put EOM at teh end of a title (or nt or n/t) to say that the complete message is in the header and there's no need to look at the body. It's more appropriate for email where it might take a few seconds to open the email just to see no additional text. But it is helpful in a forum if you are just scanning the titles. If you see a title like

Correlation is not causation eom

You may understand the point or you may not but you know there's no point in opening the body of the message to get clarification because there is none there.

On edit: I should have read the rest of the thread because now I've seen this has already been explained adequately.
