Actually, I kind of like it in a warped sort of way. When I am asking for
applications for a Teaching Assistant who would like to work on the
department web site it gives me a very easy way to reject out of hand over
half the applicants who can't be bothered to put their best foot forward.
Some of the emails read like they were IMing a buddy. 

No class at al.
