I like it. When people take the time to explain, I seem to understand it better. It seems the modern way to do everything in a rush.
I have learned to write e-mails with the essential stuff in the first sentence. If I don't do that, people often ask again for something that was already in the first message. Sad really. We are all running so hard, that we don't have the time to stop and listen, or read.
Not directed at you, just musings of a crusty academic.
