I was just thinking about this issue after receiving an email from a student yesterday. The student was asking for special consideration, and the email was actually courteous and decently written, but the student's personal email address fell into "need to know basis" territory - and I *really* didn't need to know...

I was particularly struck by this phrase, "... if work is the reason you cannot Tuesday sessions."
