That Really Grinds My Gears...Inconsiderate E-mails

So I've come to the conclusion that some people are either lazy or do not know what they are doing. So what do I mean by inconsiderate e-mails? I mean the ones that are sent through a list-serve but only meant for like 6 people! Are you trying to make a point or are you don't know what you are doing? Here's why you shouldn't send something that says "this is only meant for ___, ___ and ___" and how to avoid it.
  1. If you're in the real world working for a corporation, let the wrong person see the wrong e-mail.
  2. Sensitive? I'm pretty sure you'll get lots of replies either cursing you out or telling you how to do your job, not a good look.
  3. Nobody likes a spammer; keep it up and we'll just have to block you or take you off the list-serve.
  4. If you don't know someone's e-mail, Facebook them! I'm sure their your friend.
  5. Take the extra step to find their e-mail in your address book or create a group with certain people in it.
Speaking of people being lazy, check out this great video where Conan hosts the comedian Louis CK who is talking of the spoiled generation...worth watching.
