Email Discussion Groups

Somehow I found myself copied on four or five big email group discussions regarding the outcome of the election.

As it always happens, people feel compelled to "reply to all" and then they generate huge amounts of spam in my mailbox.

I easily have 100 "spam" emails this week from this stuff, probably twice that.

I don’t want to be a jerk and reply to all asking to be removed from the discussion.

So I just hit the delete key, again, and again.

I’ve moved on.  I don’t want to participate in group therapy.

But I know that its important to a lot of people to do that.

I just wish they’d find a more appropirate way to do this.  How about a blog, or a wiki, or something more appropriate?  It just proves that blogs and wikis are not mainstream and email is.
