Started hearing WFMU on the radio today and wondered what it was
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/16/18 11:28pm coelacanth∅:

i practically never send email, except via craigslist. (and occasional love letters to senders of solicitations, amazon surveys, etc, that go something like " kindly take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut" or " maybe you'll get eaten alive by hyenas, from the ass,up")
but i never get "auto filled-in".

Welcome, Blaze! it's a good day then.

Flying F at a Rolling D was a curse in a Vonnegut book? Must re-read.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/16/18 11:57pm JakeGould:

Hey Daniel! How are you? I feel a bit meh, but okay.

Regarding Google auto replies, they almost make sense when you understand that in the western world if you ask someone “How are you?” they will most likely say, “Fine!” even when miserable.

So all Google is doing is making it easier for people who are not fine to just say “Fine!”

But it still stinks. Waiting for some email about death or something horrible and Google to suggest, “Wow!” or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/16/18 11:59pm JakeGould:

PS: My co-worker spent 8 hours getting home from work last night, got 3 hours of sleep and when I asked how he was this morning he almost said, “Fine!” but caught himself and said, “3 hours sleep. Going home at noon.”
  Fri. 11/16/18 11:59pm rw:

One day soon the auto response will respond to the auto response and we won't have to worry about it.
