Why Do people use the reply all button when sending a return message that they got from their friends?

I am contatntly getting messages from other peoples friends they just hit reply all. I don't care what your answer is to your friend. Can't you just hit reply? This really irks me I think why are they sending me a message. I know I can just hit delete but I was wondering why people do this?

  • That irks me too, but I don't think some people realize there is a difference. They just see reply and go for it.... :)

  • I just wonder if maybe they might be technology challenged and don't know the difference

  • I hate that too. What's worse is when people do that at work - my DH fired someone because of an email she "replied all" to; it was baaad. Be careful!
