Yesterday, Deadspin revealed that an employee at Time Inc. accidentally hit "reply all" to an email with a question about benefits. As anyone who has worked an office job may know, this can result in a nightmare pile-on of additional emails from smartasses and people who wish to stop receiving more emails. One day, maybe work email will have an "unsend" feature like Gmail does to prevent such disasters. Until then, here's the innocent beginning of a horrific email chain at a very large, corporate publisher:

Thanks and best
