Absolutely right. I will internalise the bathwater analogy. To be honest with you, up until now I wasn't ever aware of the functionality of <Bcc>. The last time I sent group E-mails regularly was in the year 2000. Can you recall the funny images that I sent on a daily basis to you?

One that I can add myself: never send multiple recipient (inpersonal)
messages to anyone unless that someone has agreed and welcomed that.
And I would extend that a bit further by adding:
If an e- mail message is being sent to multiple addressees, use Bcc to hide names of recipients because most people don’t want to be in the same “bathwater” with everyone else. It’s nice to make people think they are unique.
Unless, of course, you actually want everyone to know who else is receiving a copy of your e-mail.
