(ABC)   Don't you hate it when you accidentally CC everyone on a mass e-mail instead of BCC'ing them and you inadvertently reveal everyone's e-mail adress to the world? Yeah, I bet not as much as this guy working for the Taliban does   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 14

Savian: The increase coincides with the end of the annual Taliban fighting season, prompting one local journalist to joke, "I guess when fighting season ends, emailing season begins."

Fighting season? What a bunch of dumbasses.


Almost as though most of the fighting is done in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan - along the Pakistan border, mostly - making fighting in the cold, snowy winter months...something of a hardship.

It was a press release sent out mostly to journalists who care about such things as a Taliban press release. This situation seems more like "OMG, your IT department sucks. Now I'll get spammed!" more than "OMG, you've just revealed your entire criminal organization!"

It's not dumbass when you live in an area where you have to be home for harvest season, and to make sure you don't freeze to death.

Hell, war all-year-round only became common relatively recently.

Half the addresses are probably US and Israeli intelligence agencies anyway.

Yeah that's awful. Cause there's no way anyone could ever find out who the mail went too if he used BCC.

So they have 2 seasons, winter and fighting? I'm pretty sure "You're not helping" would be what they think of you at the moment.


In a nutshell, that's pretty accurate (though they have more than 2, smartass). It's tough to fight in the winter, when all that snow and ice makes the mountains tough to attack from and retreat to. Search the googles for "Afghanistan fighting season" - I did, and pretty much every result describes the spring as the start of fighting season, and winter as its end.

Fighting season is essentially ended by the onset of winter due to difficulty to navigate the landscape, iirc. They discuss it in Restrapo, which is a fantastic documentary.

I've actually been using reply all this week for coordinating who's bringing what to thanksgiving, it's nice because gmail trims it all down to one coherent conversation. Probably sucks for eveybody else though.

You're planning on bombing the reporters that the Taliban issues press releases too? Classic American foreign policy! You guys are funny! And murderers.


I'd be okay with that. If they couldn't communicate with the public it would go a long way towards undermining them.
