As the end of the year approaches, there’s been a notable uptick in internal email at my company about promotions, free seminars, facilities options and the like and all are marked “Important” or “Urgent” in Outlook.  I consider this tagging almost an insult and after reviewing all the mail I’ve received over the past year and seeing that no one else uses these labels, I have set up a mail filter that automatically marks as junk anything I receive marked as “Important”.  Congratulations, they’ve broken email again.  Should I ever get fired for missing a legit email which was marked as important I will gather my things and say “you may blame me, but the real culprits are the cafeteria lady, the blood drive captain, and person that arranged the Halloween party”.  My head will be held high.
