two short things for HTMLGIANT

I judged something for HTML Giant's Tourney of Bookshit: "emailing yr writing to people you dont know" vs. "readings w/ so many readers no one listens."

From "emailing":
The grievously undercompensated Web editor starts typing out the polite, nonspecific response: “Dear [author], Thanks so much for getting in touch…”
From "readings...":
The reader at the reading, not talking right into the microphone, wondering if people will care if he goes on a little longer than the amount of time he’s been allotted by the organizer, whom, deep down, he doesn’t actually take very seriously,
