I've Got Your Reply All Right Here
I returned from a department meeting* this morning to 14 new emails. 1 was sent to a few distribution lists, 10 were "take me off this distribution list" emails in French because our IT department can't create lists correctly, 2 were "Please don't reply to all" in German, and the last was another "Why did I get this message? This doesn't concern me!" reply to the "please don't reply to all" reply to all message. In fing French. This jackass could see a pile of emails with the same subject line in his Inbox, yet he still felt the need to tell the entire distribution list that this also didn't concern him.
This is exactly the sort of behavior that makes me wish I send an email virus that only took effect if you replied to all.
* Think of the meeting in Star Wars where Vader chokes the guy for belittling the Force.
