Ever typed up an email when you were really emotionally charged about the subject and immediately regretted pressing the ‘send’ button? Ever send what you thought was a mild-mannered email that was completely misconstrued by the recipient?

It’s a browser plug-in that works with Gmail (or your church email if it’s set up using Google Apps). So the drawback is that it doesn’t work if you’re using an email program like MS Outlook or Apple Mail, or if you’re using your smart phone.
But I love its potential to support the Golden Rule of Email: If you hate, wait.
