If You Do This in Email, I Hate You

Sadly, there are people who have email accounts, but only a limited grasp of basic computer or social skills. Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal has a new set of comics up illustrating the foibles of such folks.

i hate when someone i haven't heard from in a while finally emails me back...but it's some dumb 'joke', sentiment or photo-set with no personal greeting - that they sent to me and 20 others.

an email about how special i am that they want me to send back to them. WHY?!? oh, and they also sent it to 20 other people.

I just got an email from my kids' school that displayed 500 names and addresses in the "to" field.


I replied and explained what a BCC was. The office staff probably hates me now.
