This time, to my wife.
A well-meaning friend sent an "urgent" note to all 452 people in his address book. And he put them all on the CC list of the note.
A few people were irked by the note. They hit Reply All. Now we're up to more than a thousand worthless emails floating around the ether. The echo effect will last a few more days and then it'll fade. But multiply 2,000 wasted emails times a million people and you see the magnitude of the problem.
Wouldn't it be great if everyone you know read ChangeThis :: How To Be a Boor ? I mean, you know this stuff and I know this stuff... it's them that don't know it. Maybe if we each sent 20 friends to read it... Hey, it's free.
