yes i'm paranoid, but am i paranoid enough?

Here's some further evidence of the wierd goings-on at my new temping place. It's so bizarre. They'll pay for your lunch, but then they send out e-mails like this (notice spelling errors):

It has come to my attention that there is far too much chit chat going on at peoples' desks, especially right in front of bankers' offices.

If people want to have a chat or catch up with each other, it should be done in the louge area of the kitchen.

Far too many NY personnel (as well as clients and personnel from other offices) have commented on the amount, volume and topic of these conversations.

This is an office where we all need to act professionally. Not to mean people cannot have a good time at work; people just need to be a little more discrete.

So, from here on, please let people know that if they want to have an extended chat, they should do it away from their desks in an area more appropriate. Furthermore, the subject matter (topic) needs to be one which is not offensive to others and/or discussed in a manner/volume which someone will not overhear it.
