My biggest email pet peeve of all is: "Reply All"
Please for the love of pete, use "Reply All" sparingly. Think: “Does EVERYONE on this list need to know what I am about to say?” And "Are my comments really SO funny/important that EVERYONE will find it amusing/informative." 95% of the time....the answer is NO!
Sure, you think what you have to say is important but do I really need to know you have your cousin Joe's wedding next weekend and can't make the dinner party? The host needs to know, but the rest of us?! I am sure if your presence is integral to the dinner party, the host would have worked around your schedule. As hard it is to believe, I don’t care if you are coming to the party or not. Shocking, I know.
The thing that bothers me the most about "Reply All" is: once ONE person replies all, everyone else does too. It is now obligatory that everyone RSVPs with a "Reply All". Before you know it, I have gotten 30 emails with people saying whether or not they can make it. Argh! Delete!
Seriously people. Fix this.
