Reply to All

Male Goldfinch

The following list is just a few of the hundreds of email messages that were waiting for me the other day at work. I’ve highlighted some of the more interesting ones. A little bird once told me that it is better to blog out your message rather than email spam everyone you know and then some.

  • Don’t know why this was sent to me?
  • Please STOP using reply to all
  • You have the wrong person.
  • Is this a phishing scam?
  • What is this?
  • Stop
  • Why am I getting these emails?
  • Make it stop….
  • Let’s stop the reply all, please.
  • Stop this Reply to all ASAP.
  • I have no idea what this is about.
  • Would you all please STOP! That is a huge nested distribution list!!!
  • And to everyone else…the REPLY button is the one to the left of the REPLY to ALL button and then the rest of us won’t have to delete 3000 emails.
  • 4.1 heading is rather suspect – kindly remove me from the list
  • All, there is no need to reply to all.
  • STOP doing a RESPOND ALL!! I have enough stuff in my inbox!!
  • A false conclusion once arrived at and widely accepted is not easily dislodged, and the less it is understood, the more tenaciously it is held
  • Not sure why I am on this list. I do not have a clue
  • Folks, let’s try using BCC next time.
  • Stop! Stop! Stop!
  • JANE STOP THIS CRAZY THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Not meant for me either.
  • Stop replying to all you’re creating an email storm
  • I have no idea what this is either.
  • Ryan, You have the wrong distribution list. Wrong Taylor, wrong everyone.
  • I don’t have any idea what this is about…!!!
  • QUIT CC-ing ALLLLLL!!!
  • The “Reply All’ is a bit annoying – isn’t it?
  • Whoo Hoo RIDE THE WAVE
  • Something is really wrong here. I wonder if this is some SPAM. How could all of us be getting this by mistake
  • We should stop replying.
  • Does everyone have to reply to all like I’m doing?
  • Hey, I’m not part of this please quit sending me messages!!!!!!!
  • Please stop!
  • Everyone, please respond back only to Ryan…..
  • What’s another replay all?
  • Hi everyone just wanted to take this opportunity to tell thousands of people I hope they have a good day!
  • Who am I?
  • Obviously the email was sent out by mistake….inboxes are being flooded. THANK YOU!!!
  • This Distribution List contains several large nested Distribution Lists as members. Please refrain from replying to all as each message is sent to many, many users (probably hundreds).
  • By saying stop replying to all, you are indeed replying to all.
  • As usual Mr. Phelps this message will self-destruct in 15 seconds.
  • Please don’t stop. I love filled in-boxes. Who else saw the shuttle?
  • I think this is for someone else… I don’t know anything about this thing
  • Please take me off this distribution list
  • Please remove me from distribution on this message, thank you, Dave

  1. Another annoying habit is sending out loads of attachments that aren’t needed and which fill up your disk space. How did we ever survive at work without email? With ease!
