Reply To: Accepting appeals online

I've no doubt that an email counts as 'in writing'.  But, playing devil's advocate, what is the point of including being signed in the list of criteria for a valid appeal, given the above?  When there is caselaw predating the Precedure Rules by a decade, why include it?  Email was widely used before 2008 but the opportunity to provide for it in the Rules was missed, maybe.  That's odd considering the rest of the HB Regs allows specifically for electronic communication.

I'm not arguing the point, really; it just seems odd.
