mood-E-mail

Adding mood to the e-mail protocol.

The trouble with e-mail is, you don't know the persons mood when he/she actually reads your mail. Many times you end up saying something that you would never say to them, if you know they are in bad mood. Also as a receiver, you are all pumped to start the day at work and you get a mail from your friend talking about his vacation. So I think the e-mail protocol should be modified to add the mood of the content. So you have a choice to read only those you are in mood for. When you send some stuff atleast you will know the person will read it when he is in the right mood for it.

       I would prefer the sender to indicate the mood they were in when they sent it.

       These moods aren't (I repeat, Are Not) hard to discern. Worried about what your list thinks -- throw on an emoticon :›¡

       People can usually recognize mine. If the e-mail is extremely polite, I'm in a *really* bad mood.
