Is there a new trend in Internet forums and blogs involving intentional crossouts? One individual has started sending me messages with various words and phrases crossed out. First I asked him if he was aware the message would appear to me with these; he told me yes - it is not a matter of his not deleting the markups correctly. I don't care for the visible edits - they add a new level of frustration in my trying to comprehend what the sender is trying to say - i.e. why is something crossed out yet visible, etc? These emails are disconcerting to read. So, again, is this a trend some of you have been hit with or even started doing yourself?
