Do you want to infuriate your Mailing List and make them ostracize you? Yes! Then send out an emailshot using carbon copy (CC) instead of blind carbon copy (BCC). The CC facility in your email client will add a selected entry from your address book to an email message, and display their email address in the header information. The BCC does the same but hides their email address in the header information. So, CC shows the email addresses and BCC hides the email addresses - each method has its uses. If you are going to send out an emailshot, use BCC to hide the addresses and you will not annoy anyone.
I’m looking and laughing at the dynamics and interconnections of The Gigman’s angry list of email contacts, and I’m wondering if they will heed the email’s footer note, “Please consider the environment before printing this email” or will they just delete it like I did? Hey, Peter Acklin, “Please consider others before pressing the send button”.
It’s also obvious that The Gigman have harvested the email addresses from sites like the Gig Guide - the words ‘email’ and ’spider’ come to mind!
