Requiem for the Reply-All
A reordered, mostly accurate recounting of the Reply-All Debacle of April 21, 2020, as told in five structurally challenged stanzas. (Note: Messages have been lightly edited to remove the name of the initial sender/offender and to randomly correct punctuation and grammar.)
I am in need of Acrobat Pro DC and
was told by our systems admin
requesting the software to use on my computers.
From what I understand,
I need a "named license."
I think you can download directly from here:
(Or at least, it worked for me …)
You can download it from Adobe cloud if you are UA associated.
I believe the request should go to
your IT person
in your department.
Go to adobe.com and sign in with your @email.arizona.edu address,
then select Company/School account.
Then click on the squares icon on top right,
then click Document Cloud.
Providing you are eligible for the software, click on Get Acrobat DC desktop.
Other than that you may need to talk to your I.T. department.
I am sorry, but I only have access to our employees.
Sent to wrong person
Not sure why I received this.
I have nothing to do with licensing.
I also have nothing to do with licensing.
Not sure why I am part of this email chain?
I don't know why I am getting this email.
It has nothing to do with my program area.
Please remove me from this chain.
I’m not sure how I ended up
with this message,
but this has actually been helpful as I’m in the same boat.
Can someone share how
I can be removed from this email chain?
About 10 emails have come through in one minute!
Yes, me too please.
Please stop including me
in this stream.
I hope you are all well.
I would like
to be removed
can I please
from this mailing list?
Please take me
and all others
off this message
Please take me off of this.
This seems to have gone out
to multiple unrelated areas.
You guys know this is going to other people?
Can folks stop emailing
on this return?
It's going to the whole listserv
Consider not replying to a listserv,
as you reply to every other single person
on that listserv.
Please stop emailing on this
and it will stop automatically.
the entire listserv.
Can you please stop
responding to all.
replying to the listserv,
Please don’t reply to the list.
Please stop responding all.
STOP REPLYING ALL.
This is going to all faculty and staff.
I’m deleting all these messages.
This is clearly some scam.
Maybe we should have a zoom meeting
to discuss how not to reply all
on one of our furlough days.
This is like a video game for me.
I delete every message
as soon as they come in.
I think (sender's name) and the rest of us
have officially got enough emails.
Let’s all agree to stop the madness.
