Dear Everyone:

The whole reason I love Fark is that every comment is a Reply-All.

Office Rule #4:

Do not send the email if you're not comfortable with it being sent to everybody in the company! This isn't just about Reply to All, but message threads that end up being forwarded, or add-ons to message threads, etc. Also, quit using email like a chat protocol. IM is there for a reason. (And that also means you don't start using the corporate IM for vulgar comments, either.)

The "wipe mail from exchange servers" policy continued to at least 2010.

It's possible the real reason was they didn't want to waste space backing up our Fw: Fw: FW: funniest home videos. (Backing up a single laptop drive takes limited space.) We were told the rule was for legal reasons related to discovery.

Reply all is useful.
I've never accidentally hit it, but can see how it is easy to do. I view this as an ergonomics issue.

And to all the haters here saying people deserve to be fired for what amounts to a tiny mistake: you are assholes. The only difference between you and any of the people who have hit reply all is that you have yet to make the mistake, or your errors have luckily occurred in ways that didn't create a problem.

mistakes: everybody makes them. EVERYBODY.

No. I use it all the time - it's my default. Work would be much more annoying without it.
