I haven’t even done nuffin or nuffin


General Culture

When you email me and then read my response, you’ll find that I sign off with either “Best” or “All the best” (just like, as it turns out, überblogger Jason Kottke, who pointed me to the following). Leave it to the New York Times to publish a lengthy article (where by “lengthy” I mean “disproportionally long given the actual relevance of the topic matter”) about what to use at the end of an email. Regardless of what they say in that article (that will mercifully disappear behind their pay-for-it firewall soon enough) I’ll stick with “Best”, in the spirit of Jason, who notes “So ‘Best’ it is… don’t take it the wrong way.”
