Which Email Etiquette Breach Is Worst?

Reader Redux: On Bad Email Etiquette

We recently outlined some serious email pet peeves, pitting them against one another to see which was the worst. While the majority vote said that forwarding along a forwarded, forwarded message was the worst, you had some funny responses of your own. Check out more pet peeves below.

  • "Bad grammar and punctuation! If your email has a spell check use it for crying out loud. A bunch of people would be copied on them and no one ever mentioned he should you know, have someone proof read his emails." — Budderflie

Check out more pet peeves and share your own (if you haven't already) after the break.

  • "Chain forwards of any and all kinds, and reply-alls that praise the chain letter and the person for sending them. And replies that snipe and complain about a reply-all that is actually a debunk of the chain. People who get snippy when they've found out that forward is really not as great as it had lead them to believe. People who start off emailing so there's a good conversation going, and then they eventually start sending chain forwards. Long siglines." — Miss Capri
  • "Not replying all when necessary. We tend to work on a number of project together and use email to discuss the ins and outs. My biggest pet peeve is getting an email only to find that a couple of people have forgotten to reply all and only two people are now completely in the loop." — Akasha
