When Reply All Goes Wrong: The Mike Waite Story

There are quite a few ways to become a campus celebrity at Penn State. Grow your hair out into a big afro. Carry around a boombox downtown. Tell kids they’re going to hell from the steps of a classroom building. Throw a football exceptionally well.

And then there’s Mike Waite, otherwise known as [email protected] Earlier tonight, Waite, a Penn State ITS employee, replied all to the sexual offense timely warning asking how to unsubscribe. However, he said he still wanted to receive important messages. Obviously Waite’s definition of important messages does not include the ones regarding someone who was sexual assaulted describing potential suspects that are a threat to the community.

Email

Waite is an employee of Penn State and works for ITS in System and Network Security Analysis, and apparently has the ability to access the campus-wide mass email list. Surely he’s no stranger to the inner workings of computers. However, the difference between the reply and reply all button is evidently lost on him.

Always reread your emails before you send them, kids.
