This same thing happened at my school once... [In reply to] Can't Post

When I was at Grove City College in PA, this exact same thing happened. We didn't have as many people as NYU, but it was still hilarious. I don't remember what message started it, but pretty soon everyone's inbox was being flooded with all kinds of nonsense. My roommates and I sat at our computers watching it happen, trying to figure out what was going on.
Those who replied all got in serious trouble- I had a poor unsuspecting friend who thought this was coming from a mailing list or group he belonged to or something, and replied with a long, witty diatribe in response to a comment someone had made offhand in one of their replies. It went on his permanent record; he was not pleased. Apparently this happened to quite a few people.

The funniest part to me was that, although some people like my friend were just confused, some people knew exactly what they were doing and exactly what the consequences would be. People would respond with things like "You guys know that the whole school can read these, right? You are all going to get in serious trouble, and I will laugh when you do!" Crazy To this day, I just really want to know what those people were thinking.

Also, I wish we had come up with the term "Replyallcalypse."

'Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house.'
