In the opening lines of the movie, Frank is describing how the state of Virginia had to have solitaire removed from their computers, because that hadn't gotten any work done in six weeks. This line is actually based on some fact. In December of 1994, Governor George Allen of Virginia, did in fact order that all video games (specifically minesweeper, hearts and solitaire), be removed from all state computers, because of a concern that state employees are playing the games during office hours, and wasting tax payer dollars.
I like Patricia. I *love* Patricia. Patricia makes *coffee* nervous.
Considering his line of work and his position, Joe Fox is highly literate in personal computers. He would have known the keyboard combination to select and delete the text in his message and would not have had to backspace through a lot of text. While the above may be true in the real world, this was clearly done for comedic purposes.
