Okay you guys, so until next week, it's not required that you sign your email "Crapfully yours" or "With a bunch of crap" or "Crap in the times" or "Crap is so great", "Everything is crap", "My middle name is Crapperson". You know, you could just put "Sincerely"... or "Yours truly", that's another good one. Come on guys, I'll still read them.
