‘Reply All’ Rage
This all began with one school organising a sharing session that they’d opened up to other schools to attend. The guy in charge made the mistake of not BCCing the recipient list (comprising principals, vice-principals and teachers from various secondary schools and higher institutes around the country – thousands of education officers), and I suppose after receiving three emails about the event (over a three month period), somebody decided that he/she was not meant to be receiving these emails, which has led to an almost-week-long deluge of nonsensical emails being sent to all the unwilling recipients.
I guess this all highlights how crowd mentality comes into play and a sad lack of understanding on how email works – leading to the lack of consideration in deciding to ‘reply all’ without considering your actual target audience.
