PLEASE look before you click! Â As far as I’m concerned, we could completely eliminate the Reply All button from emails. Â Forever. Gone. Done. No more endless strings of email letting me know that each individual copied on an email agrees. No more stupid replies that don’t apply to me or the 15 other people on an email – just applies to the person who wrote it. Â Done.
If you HAVE to use Reply All, I beg you to look at it carefully. Â First, make sure all the people on the list need to see your response. Â If they don’t, DON’T SEND IT TO THEM. It is rude. And an interruption for no reason. Â Be smart and filter.
The only time I ever use Reply All is when I think someone may have been blind-copied on the message. Â A reply all will get to them as well. But otherwise, I pick and choose who to send the email to because it is important. Â Don’t be a reply-all-spammer!
