Default Can We Keep This Civil? or How Not to Run an Email Thread

I received an email from the wagon wheel bank reminding many people that we need to complete our training so we can get a network ID so we can work for the bank. I don't blame the manager that sent the email, but I do agree that we all don't need to know that someone won't need an ID. The manager is the only one who needs to know. We don't need people to use "Reply All."

We don't need a flame war, either. Trading insults is very unprofessional.

Here is a heavily edited version of this thread. I edited out the names, but I did keep the other mistakes.

Quote:
From: Project Manager (PM)

Please comply.

From: Q

From: J

(Yes, he used an eye roll emoji.)

From: Q

We reply all to make sure everyone got it... so don’t start the name calling or feel any type of way j

Thank you all

From: J

Screw off Q you “hero” and take me the hell off this DL. I don’t even work for Wagon Wheel.

From: Q

From: PM

For those of you who have requested to be removed. I will do so as I receive the requests. The other comments need to stop please.

Since I have recently accepted a 7½ month project with the "&" bank, I won't be working for the Wagon Wheel, either. I just hope I won't be working with either Q or J.

I can't believe this is a work email thread.

Me either. If that happened at my old job, the people involved would be called in to the manager's office and be lucky if all they got was a write-up. If any of them were in the union, as a steward, I might've been called in with them, and the face palming would have been epic. Talk about embarrassing.

And this is why you should BCC large lists, especially when nobody needs to know who else is on the list.

I was tempted to send a link to the It's Time to Stop video. I didn't, though.

Q had better be having a long talk with HR on the subject of "appropriate language for the workplace."
"You would be in trouble for verbally calling a coworker a 'fuk boy', but you went the extra mile and put it in writing. Have you considered where you'd like to work at your next job?"

Actually, she said she wouldn't be working for the project manager that sent out the email. It's probably for the best.

Had I received that email from Q...you can be sure that I would have tracked down his/her manager, and ripped into them. Seriously, to call someone a "fuk boy," via email? Doesn't Q realize that once you send something like that, it never goes away?
