Green Umbrella Attacks Campus

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.

    “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.”

      @Anonymous Not her fault. Apparently one of her freshmen friends decided it was funny to prank her by using her email to spam the listerv while she was away from her laptop.

        @Anonymous I don’t get why your getting thumbs down. From Chloe’s email:

        “Hi everyone,

        So sorry. I left my laptop out while I was in the library and it appears my friends had some fun while I was gone. No more emails from me! This is the last one I promise.

        Sorry again,”

            Following on Chloe’s apology…

            Hi everyone,

            This is the last comment I promise.

            Sorry again,

        @Anonymous If I knew who her friends were, I’d be pissed at them. But since I don’t, it’s fucking annoying to get 20 emails in a row from freshmen who aren’t reading the Iliad, or whatever the fuck they’re doing.

  • CC 14 says:

    @CC 14 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????

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous 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.

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous No. There are some people who are foolish enough to ignore all warnings and hit the reply-all. This is an empirical fact.

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous you, my friend, are naive.

    3. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Yeah, people are foolish enough to hit “reply all”.

      But you’re right that this is a misconfigured list. In situations like these, the list owner has an “emergency moderation” option available that stops automatic sending of messages.
