"It's not that hard" would have gotten you b**ch slapped even with a
smile on your face in person.  Just stick to polite, it's not that
hard :D.

Bad thing about email, it's hard to grasp tongue in cheek humor and tone
isn't it?  Didn't you see my <bfg> at the end of my response?

cared to read?  I say toss it at the top in my face where I can ignore
it with less effort.
