whatshisname: If you find that hilarious, you need to go outside more.


Or have prior office experience, enjoy humor of various types....lots of reason really, but the important thing is that you found a way look down on others.

Easy way to stop that bullshiat: "The next person to reply-all will be fired."

As a former mail administrator for a very large organization, there are multiple methods of dealing with this, but all of the easiest ones involve disabling the list for a few hours, or disabling its ability to send, then parsing through queued messages and deleting anything that's a reply-to the original subject line.  If it's a true list, then people are just replying to one email address that distributes the email among list members.

Sounds like either someone was literally asleep at the switch or they just didn't give a fark.

Sounds like it spread quickly, disrupted many lives, and could not be stopped.

That shiat happens at my job a couple of times per year. The email goes out to all immigration officers all over the damned world and then we get hundreds of reply all's "this went to the wrong person" then the helpful asses who say "quit replying all!"

Then every hour it repeats as each subsequent time zone has more workers starting.

It got to the point where it will now go on your performance review if you reply.

A good system administrator could write a filter that auto-deleted these messages, most likely based on the "References" found in the header.  A BOFH would disable the account of every person replying.  Because sometimes you have to punish idiots to get them to learn.

Awwww, such anger towards a stranger on the internet. You really should get outside more. I hear that gardening is therapeutic.

What an insensitive thing to say. whatshisname's girlfriend was killed by a drunk-driving landscaper.

Bane of Broone: skinink: SilentStrider: That happened at my company once. It was hillarious.

Please unsubscribe me from this reply all thread of rudeness of whatshisname. Thanks.

Do we really have to be cc'd in all of this?

Oh sorry. I just meant for this to go to the mods. Please ignore this post. Have a good weekend! Skinink

How do I computer?

You do know there is a farker named Quel.  I think that's the person you wanted.


Guys,
I think someone should break the chain of email and start the subject over again with the people who really should be involved.
Regards


BadJazz is out of the office for the weekend but will receive your email when he returns Monday morning and will take any and all appropriate action in regards to your inquiry.

Where I work all messages from up-on-high that are sent to a large list of individual recipients, as opposed to a group, are BCC'd. The body of the message contains something along the lines of, "send replies to e­maila­ddress[nospam-﹫-backwards]e­k­af*com".

Makes this sort of thing not work.
