LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook Are Write-Only Venues - RF CafeIf you have ever sent me a message via LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook and I have not responded, please know that it is not because I elected to ignore your message. Rather, it is because I use those three venues in a 'write-only' manner. My trusty secretary, Melanie, posts the items for me on LinkedIn, and then LinkedIn has a feature where it automatically broadcasts the same message on both Twitter and Facebook. So, I typically do not see or read messages from social media users.

If you want to contact me for any reason, please send an e-mail to rfcafe@earthlink.net. I always respond to e-mails from legitimate senders; i.e., those not from the widows of Algerian princes or from Chinese aluminum window blind manufacturers.

Thanks for visiting.

 


Ha, just as I was about to post this item to the website, the following example of an illegitimate e-mail appeared in my inbox:

"Dearest One How is everything? I know it's all good. Thank God. I am excited to be writing you today. My name is Chantal Diarrah, a Cote D' Ivoire. Presently I am residing here in Burkina Faso , as a result of the civil war which took place in my country. I am a 22 year old girl, about 5'10" tall. By the grace of God I made my way to a nearby country Burkina Faso where I 'm presently living in a refugee camp. I would like to know more about you. Your likes and dislikes, your hobbies and what you are doing presently. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail, I hope you wouldn't mind. I am waiting for your reply! Much Love, Chantal "        (Yahoo! e-mail normally filters this crap out, but occasionally one gets through.)
