The recent flurry of email about a virus alert demonstrated an inadvertent bad practice.
When emailing (broadcasting) to a list of several people, please list everyone in the BCC column. This hides the email addresses of all such recipients from each viewer.

This is a highly questionable practice. It prevents any recipient from replying to the list. I suggest you choose your friends more carefully.
