I'm really concerned about the common sense at my company


Guy made a mistake and sent an email on a company wide distribution list. So everyone got it. So far 70 people have "replied to all" stating "please take me off this list." Idiots... The president (likely his secretary) has already sent 3 emails telling people to stop. I really wish they would consider firing some of the lower achievers doing this.

I've seen this shite happen before - it came to the point the people responding were getting it noted in their performance reviews

Wow, that would piss me off if I kept getting those reply all emails. How hard is it to just ignore it?

I work for a global company so it's traveling around the world with the responses. Just sad. I'm strongly consider selling all my company's shares if we lack this much sense.

For the rare event that I have to send a mass email, I just put everybody in Bcc. Then at the bottom of my email I put (Bcc: All Employees) or whatever the distribution list is called.

ETA: My employer actually disabled the "Reply All" function in Outlook.

Right. It's still going on. People are responding like they have no clue how emails work. They are getting pissed and saying "why is everyone sending this to me. Please take me off the list." So stupid.

Okay. I used to work at Chevron in a prior life and was having flashbacks from this topic.

Almost bought there - may still. I've got three buddies who live there.
