Green Umbrella Attacks Campus

Written by

The email-illiterate masses are currently rising up to destroy the clean (or green?) inboxes of much of campus. The Green Umbrella list serv is experiencing mass defection as dozens of people attempt to unsubscribe by hitting “reply all,” which only compounds the problem and the hilarity.

UPDATE: The most prolific spammer, Chloe B., has contacted us directly explaining that someone else accessed her idle computer in the library and spammed the listserv with her email. Apparently, people are sending her threats and using her email to sign up for porn. Don’t do that. That’s bad.

PEOPLE: Don’t post personal information in the comments. We have to delete it.

Ecoterrorism?

    From Idi:
    "This is worse than the debt collection agency. Leave me alone! I've been trying to get off this mailing list since 2006. I have better things to do than delete three dozen emails from a bunch of annoying and spoiled Columbia students."

    Guys, put a filter on the original email for first the "from" and then a separate for "to" and then "words containing" put in CU Green Umbrella.
    It works and it blocks off all the stupid emails. Sorry CU Green Umbrella.
    Also, that Chloe bitch needs to be taken down. Who's with me????

    I don't think people are foolish enough to keep hitting reply-all. Perhaps the listserv is just misconfigured such that every incoming email gets sent to the entire listserv.

    And with that, Green Umbrella lost its entire list serv. Way to not BCC it.

  24. Mr Potter  

    After all these listserv runs, you'd think people would have learned how to BCC.
