Email Etiquette Tip of the Day

When RSVPing (or not) to the sender of a get together that involves a large email list, the general practice, for years, has been to reply only to the sender of the email.  If you are a regular attendee of these functions, then you may send a note to the sender of the email that you will not be in attendance since your absence may be noted and everyone is going to ask, "Where's Joe?"  What you don't do, however, is Reply to All that says you are not going to be attending said event (of which you have not regularly attended for quite some time), and where you plan to be in lieu of attending said event.  Twice!  Unless you are planning on inviting all of us to these spectacular events that you are rubbing into our noses and are certainly far more entertaining than the planned get together, then learn to use either Reply (only) or Delete.  Thank you.


  1. Dude, have you been drinking? Or, did I somehow possess you and make you type this?

  2. This one wrote itself this morning before I even hit send on my reply.
