    Anyone else get their inbox filled with Ammoman replies?

    I was cracking up with all the requests for removal from the list when the instructions for removal were clearly written in the body of the note itself.

    Apparently a single person took issue with being on the e-mail list (one you have to request to be on) to notify the customer when ammo is in stock or when specials are run. So this person "replied all" to be removed (instead of reading the instructions) and then it was on.

    I probably had over a hundred individual replies ranging from "please remove me" to "dorks can't read simple instructions" to it was a "government conspiracy".

    It made my day.:)

    Are you telling me they sent out emails with everyone's email address showing?!? That is unacceptable from your closest friends, much less a business.

    I have blocked friends for less than that.

    It was and old-school e-mail list. Subscribe and you get broadcast e-mail notifications. A reply replies to the list.

    That's what "BCC" (blind carbon copy) is for. Nobody's email address gets thrown out there to get phished by some internet criminal.

    In an e-mail list, the only e-mail shown is the list email address ... a single e-mail that is broadcast to subscribers.
    The only time individual e-mail addresses show is when some one replies.

    Been on them for years and occasionally a newb who doesn't know any better will reply to the list to be taken off the list.
    There is no person is on the other end ... its a listserv (IIRC) function.

    At some point in time, a person has to subscribe and that same individual has to unsubscribe. There is no moderator per-sey.

    Lists serve a purpose ... it's direct information to my inbox. I don;t have to search a forum or find a thread link to get information. And it's near real time information.
