Crab of the Day: DO NOT HIT REPLY ALL!

One thing that bugs the crap out of me is when someone sends an email to a distribution list and people hit "reply all" when it is not necessary.  This happens to me all the time.  I am not sure if people don't understand that they don't need to hit reply all or what, but if you don't, let me tell you.  Just hit "reply" instead of "reply all" if only the sender needs the information from you.

An example today:  the Girl Scout leader wanted to update/consolidate email addresses to make sure they were accurate and she knew which email went with which child, especially since the group was going to be divided.  She asked people to email her back with your children's name and if they were a Brownie or Daisy.  You wouldn't believe the number of people that wrote back, hitting reply all, clogging up my emails.

DON'T HIT REPLY ALL, unless everyone in the distribution list needs the information!

That is always soooo annoying. Sometimes on Twitter as well. I hope a lot of people read your post. :-)
