Poetry lesson for today. (Please read, this could be very important in your life.)The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
---The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
What it means:
Once you have sent an email, you cant undo it. No matter if you do a Recall and its successful. Its ghost is still out there somewhere, somebody couldve read it/saved it, in the nanosecond between your SEND and your RECALL. Someone probably did.
What THAT means, in practical terms:
Think carefully before you hit SEND.
