How to Derp at Email

Someone thinks you're not very good at email.

They've sent you this link for one of the following reasons:

  1. They think you'll be too embarrassed if they said something to you directly.
  2. You've done the same silly thing more than once.
  3. They simply cannot be bothered with dealing with stupid people who refuse to learn how to communicate.

It's the 21st century. Email has been around for a little while now. It's a mandatory communication tool. It's a life skill, just like Googling. You need to know how to use email. You're functionally illiterate if you can't.

Your offence was:

BCC means STFU

... so don't embarrass me by replying to people.

The whole point of a blind carbon copy is that it's blind. In other words, I'm sending you a copy of this email but don't tell everyone that I'm sending it to you.

This is why you can't have nice things. And why your friends keep secrets from you.
