UTB loves the Internet. Penn loves the Internet. Suffice to say, we’re just one big Internet-loving community filled with a number of people who forget that what you send in an e-mail may be posted on the Internet. Which is why our final Best Of 2011 brings you the best of listserv abuse, e-mail snafus and some all-around gems. Take note for 2012, or odds are high you end up on this very list next year.
Three Cheers for the Engineers
Who boldly hacked into an administrator’s e-mail account and sent a message cancelling select engineering classes for the day.
Teachers Is Pimps, Too
In which one student has an atypical reason for losing his class notes and his professor zings him about it…over the class listserv.
Health insurance managed to become ten times more confusing this summer when we received not one, not two, not three, but four e-mails explaining the enrollment period.
The E-mail From an Aspiring I-Banker That Still Makes Us Cringe
Taking “networking” to a new level, this ambitious senior overtly e-mailed practically all of Wall Street. BCC, ever heard of it?
Passive Aggressive Calls Out Information Hungry STSC-ers
Nothing like a little sarcasm over the entire class listserv to put those seeking finals notes back in their place. This kid: 1, class skippers: 0.
Frat Boy Douche Rankings
That time a very clean fraternity brother disclosed the ups and downs of the showers in his house, earning a thumbs up for his snarky annotations and fairly detailed depictions.
“#$%@ I JUST REPLIED ALL TO THE WHOLE CLASS!!”
Talk about lousy with a capital L. Not only does everyone in the class know this kid’s grade, but they also know that this CIS student can’t properly compute basic arithmetic, either.
