Let me know if you want to be taken off the mailing list, and I'll do it.
Some of you may get two or three copies of the newsletter because I have
multiple addresses for you--tell me if you prefer one of them.

It seems as though most of the newsletters I get are bouncy and cheerful. Is there an emotional tone you prefer from newsletters? Does the emotional tone seem to affect whether you buy what the newsletter is offering?
Also, I'm getting some bounces from the newsletters--I'm considering listing names of people who I don't have good email addresses for here, but I'm not sure whether that's appropriate. What do you think?
