BCC is your friend.


Just as an aside:

We once had this lady where I work inadvertently email everyone (over 10,000 people) right before the holiday break. Chaos and insanity ensued for about two weeks until we all came back to work. After over 300 reply alls IT got involved and the email finally died off. It was hilarious for about the first 30 emails then maddening after that. You had people replying to all to say "remove me from this email". Other people were replying to all to try to explain to the first group that is not the way distributed emails work and you can't be removed. People were replying to everyone to tell people to stop replying to everyone. Ahh good times......


Anyway....yay rule book.

I second. This is a bit oblique even for a SMG thread.

Interestingly, I didn't get the original email from Phil but I do have a couple of the "reply all" responses.

There was an e-mail regarding sending bios genesis rulebook to KS backers, who backed for the upgrade pack. This will be sent directly from SMG. And nothing NEW about rest of the games.

Thanks for the clarification. I backed the full game, so I guess I wasn’t on the list.

Basically he cut and pasted everyone's email address in the "To..." section instead of "BCC..." exposing 500 email addresses and causing everyone on the list to receive emails meant for Phil because people are using "Reply All". No big deal, I just thought it was funny and it reminded me of a similar incident at work.

No, but it's coming, based on some tangential communication.
