2015-01-07 Oncoming flood of e-mails

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

Does he actually receive a flood? In my practice as a blogger, e-mail is dead as a feedback mechanism. At best I can trigger a flood of tweets. You probably need to go beyond 100,000 uniques to get 1 e-mail a week nowadays.

He's probably using "e-mail" as a catch-all for all forms of electronic text-based communication, since listing tweets, facebook comments, etc. takes up more space.
