The origin story of the out-of-office auto-response. (Plus, a special mission.)
I don't think I've ever used one. Maybe once but before it became fun to create these out of office things. Personally, I think we should have something like this for Substack. That way people can know if their response is getting through.
Glad that you got rid of your obnoxious, misogynistic stalker.
My profession does not allow "OOO". We are always available.
That was terrible, the situation with the troll. Fan was too generous. Maybe use: “You have no power here!”
Back in the early days (decades ago), it was actually an OOF message. Microsoft started it, and it meant, "Out of Facility".
Much respect for OOO reply boundary setting (especially your creative one for "Brad"!). Best wishes for your writing retreat!!
