Question:

Is it possible to blind copy the group for evite invitations? The benefits are:

-Because the blind copy hides all of our email addresses from the reccipent, responses go back to the sender only - allowing them to choose to expose the group to a response of legitimate concern to everyone.
-Because the blind copy hides all of our email addresses from the reccipent, responses do not become flame wars resulting in tacky and louder responses in kind.
-Because the blind copy hides all of our email addresses from the reccipent, the address list is protected from some other person wanting to start a home poker night on our dime.
-Because the blind copy hides all of our email addresses from the reccipent your email address is not found on my computer, lowering the likelyhood that you will get the most recent worm or virus that I unwittingly infected myself with (and vice versa).

There will be discussions requested where 'for group consumption' responses are desireable, and for which the blind copy is inappropriate - but general annoucements and informational postings should be sent blind.

There are two things that you are asking here, one of which I will reply to now, and the other when I return from my cup of coffee :afro:

I think one is standard email, the other is evite.

eviite doesn't bcc the guests. Plain and simple. It is not an email that goes out to everyone as though one were sending out an email to "the group". In those situations, I agree, when an email is flooded out to the group, I think the email should be sent to yourself and everyone should be bcc'd. Unless this is a smaller email with a smaller group. For the main 60 or so person email list we have, bcc. Those that are interested, can reply and it doesn't clog up email channels with people "reply all". Although if I'm hosting a one off game, I may send an email out to 15 or so people asking for comments, and not bcc everyone on it. There is a reason for everyone to know who the email went to. General rule of thumb, bcc the list if it is a broadcast. Not for virus, worms, or anything else, btu for courtesy adn email etiquete.

So, back to my pre coffee item, I don't know, (and will go look) if there is a way to "hide" the guest list in evite. I want to think that there is a way to do so. However, even so, when using evite, all you are able to see is the name, and not thier email address. I do'nt know that I would hide the lsit of invites / confirms from other guests.

I like the idea that people who are thinking about coming to a game can look at the guest list and see who else is coming. There are / have been several games that got me there because of who else was showing up.

The last evite I got did not display anyone else's email address, even when reviewing headers. Just went to evite and couldn't look up anyone's email address there.

But I would agree that if I'm in anyone's broadcast email, please bcc it. As quads mentioned it does cut back on the clutter when items go off topic. Of course as a recipient one can always only "reply to sender" too.
