Smackledorfer: 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.

It's already been mentioned but it's worth repeating: if you write an email that would get you fired if your management saw it - you've already failed.

Dear Everyone:

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

I use "Reply All" all the time. If you can't figure it out - are you really cut out for office work?

A few years back I was working for a fairly large company (~4000 employees) and someone got fired for a 'reply-all.' The players were: Jeff (sender), Ken (IT director), and Mark (CEO). The email was this:

"Ken, I'd suck your dick if Mark's tongue wasn't already in your ass."

Jeff undoubtedly meant this as some kind of backhanded compliment, but since Mark was on the list, he got fired.
