Hey folks, just an FYI I found this informational web page that you can link people to that send you spam/junkmail:

http://www.thanksno.com/

oh here's another one:

http://bccplease.com/

I just got an e-mail from someone in my school's staff that was sent to about 250 people. Most of them were in the To: field, with less than 10 in the CC: field.

I replied with these two websites. Let's see what happens. :)

I've told my friends over and over - If you forward anything, edit all the addresses out first!

I hate getting e-mail with literally hundreds of addresses - I never do that and wouldn't want hundreds of unknown peeps getting my address either! >:(

Well, her response led me to believe that she didn't care. She basically said that I should expect to receive e-mails sent to tons and tons of people because of my major. But then I received another mass e-mail from her and even though there were still about 15 people in the To: field, they all appeared (to me) to be staff, and my e-mail address was not visible. So it worked!

Reminds me of the Scrubs episode I watched last night!   People are funny that way.
