English-language media have once again freaked out over a French law that does not exist.
Ah, the French. This nation of bon-vivants is so addicted to a life of leisure that its government apparently passed a law forbidding anyone from answering work emails after hours.
« My pig of a boss emailed about something urgent but it's 7:02 p.m. so pass the bordeaux and let's talk about socialism, hon hon hon, » they seem to say.

At least that’s what American and British media have been reporting. You have seen the headlines, yes?
Emails are banned!
IT’S A CRIME AND YOU WILL GO TO JAIL.
