Our post of 12/11/2012 turned out to be a repeat of  a previous post. Kindly pardon this oversight.

Today's post is a compedieum of annoying, overused and cliche terms which many email users unconsciously resort to. Most of these do not add any real value to an email communication and rather detract from the intended substance of the message itself. Good email Netiquette utilization will make it a point to keep these words or phrases at a minimum or elimate them altogeather.  Please feel free to add to these in a comment.
