For the last 40 plus years I've communicated with my family and friends to share our fate and fortunes. The numbers receiving this at one time topped 700 and has been whittled down a bit though the number is large and many share with others which is fine.
Yes, it's the form letter in the annual Christmas card. Sent to "family and friends" which this nincompoop has mistaken for everyone in her address book. I'm not her family, and I'm not her friend. I'm one of the agents she queried in 2011; she's one of the writers who received a form reply.
If you would like to make sure that I never see any email from you again EVER, this is a sure-fire way to do it.
Send ALL is a disaster waiting to happen. Your email address book saves all sorts of addresses and unless you look at that list and refine it, you're going to end up in this lady's shoes.
Send ALL also a sign of laziness. It's a whole lot easier to hit Send ALL than it is to go through the list and delete names you don't need. One of the things I'm NOT looking for in 2015 (or ever) is laziness. In fact I'm looking for the exact opposite.
Be smart. Send smart.
