Today’s lesson on how to not promote your startup comes from Engineering freshman and founder of note-sharing site “Noteriety” Adam Elkassas, who blasted 500 Wharton email addresses (from Aarumugamangalam to Brown, and probably more) without using bcc.
Of course, we’ve basically given up any hope of privacy anyway, but a little common courtesy, ya know?
One recipient didn’t help matters and replied-all:
No, really. Great call not even using Bcc when you randomly emailed all of us. Good stuff.
