Please allow a short vent

The PC was first created in its embryonic form in about 1975.  That means people have had 45 years to learn the basics.  Email was invented six years before that.

The BCC function was created in 1977.

I'm six days short of my 67th birthday and have now officially run out of patience with people not understanding how to use a PC, email, cc and bcc.  And pretty much any other function that is part of the normal use of a computer.

This brief rant stems from a conversation I had with a business person who was reporting on someone who had sent out an announcement to 50+ people using CC and was not happy when a couple of them replied negatively including all in the CC group.  When I said it was the originators fault for not using BCC in the first place I heard the oft repeated phrase: 'well, he doesn't know much about computers'.

NO, NO a thousand times no.

He does not have an excuse.  He is lazy and a victim of his laziness.

Stop making excuses for people who are too lazy to properly use a hammer and end up with a bruised thumb.

Thank you.  I feel better now.
