Just leave us alone, ok ?

February 8, 2008

Well, I don’t seem to hate STFC management as much as many of my correspondents .. but I do think they are consistently screwing up community handling. Here is a classic example. My colleague Ken Rice just had a grant rejected… at the end of the email there is this :

We would appreciate your cooperation and ask that you not contact the office regarding this email, as we are trying to get all results and feedback out as soon as possible.

Not quite sure whether to translate this as “tough shit, buster”, or “ohmygodwerenotcopiiiiinng !!!! please leave us alone !!!!” Votes ?
