Chances are you received several e-mails yesterday offering a selection of wonderful sublets around campus — and the inevitable followup e-mails from fellow recipients begging to be taken off of the list.
Yes, Information Technology Central Services should look at ways to prevent improper “mailstorms.” Yes, ITCS could do a better job teaching users about its e-mail use policies, though the e-mail ITCS sent out last night is a good start.

If you don’t know which “reply” to use, ask someone. Please.
