Be careful who you Cc in an email

A couple of guys having a chat about an ex girlfriend via e-mail has become a bit of a hit.

Now if we could only get a follow up on this

Re: Be careful who you Cc in an email

i have seen the emails but nothing jumps out at me as rude, offensive etc.
1 paper picked up on the "story" and the rest followed... slow news day i guess.

Re: Be careful who you Cc in an email

So they continued discussing without her in the cc and then published it online themselves?

best is to avoid this sort of discussion all together.

Re: Be careful who you Cc in an email

OT

I haven'd CC'd anyone in before......... but I have been sent porn from a client before.


The apologetic email following was hilarious.


Good to know that the man wasn't some sort of sicko though, luckily it was just regular porn.

I'm sure Nil's too modest to give a genuine answer.

But, on the empirical scale, "You would".

My thoughts exactly...

On another note: Rule #1 of emails is that you should always assume that they are not privte and can make it out to the big bad world.

EF on the other hand...

Re: Be careful who you Cc in an email

I was thinking it's impossible that he cc'd her in by "accident". Then when reading the article I'm guessing he typed her name in the cc space to get her email addy then forgot to delete it before hitting send. takes me a while sometimes....
