in thread Email subject lines should be written:

It was probably in response to those morons that do things like send emails to everyone in the organization with only "See attachment" in the body. Of course the attachment is a formatted Word doc (or heaven-forbid the Word doc printed onto paper and scanned as a pdf *shudder*) reminiscent of old-school memos that would have been much more effective as the actual body of the email instead of a separate attachment. Not only does each recipient have to download & open said attachment, but now instead of having a simple 5-50KB message, the email is now 10x that. ...And a separate copy is in every user's mailbox on the mail server. Morons.

...Not like that actually happens or anything...

    As well as replying to all with the only addition being "Stop Sending These!" or "Take me off this mailing list".
      ...and those attached photos the sender forgot to re-size before sending so when you open the pic, you have a closeup view of someone's nose hairs.

    I think it was meant as a useful reminder but the tone was very much pointy-haired boss: I felt that one of my parent's female parent was being instructed in how to extract nutrient from the oval reproductive products of chickens.
