An example of the unforgivable is the use of e-mail "stationary" in professional email messages. I have no desire to try to decipher your message against the ever so offensive backdrop of a pseudo spiral notebook. You are NOT creative, you're a pain in the ass. How about red text on a black background to complete the pain? Either way, you deserve to be forced to use mutt for the rest of your days for email, just after the little people play stomp-o-matic with your fingers.
