How many times have people sent you those unidentifiable "wall of text" emails that makes it very hard to see what they are talking about or what follow up action is expected?
Sorry to be blunt, but people will often simply ignore emails that take too long to read and/or understand.
When in doubt, remember the Internet slang phrase "TL;DR" which is widely used in various online forums - and which very pointedly means "Too Long; Didn't Read" !
Life is short, and we all have better things to do with our time than read lots of verbose emails every day!
