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 can’t undo it. No matter if you do a “Recall” and it’s successful. Its ghost is still out there somewhere, somebody could’ve 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.
