When To Forward Information to Your Particular Email List

I've noticed lately that most people aren't sure when it's appropriate to forward an announcement or general message to your particular email list.

Good times:
- When the school isn't going to send out 1,000 emails about the event to everyone. Career panels that have to do with your journal's topic of interest are a good example of this.

Bad times:
- When we are going to get spammed a billion times anyway. For those of you who need it spelled out: This means controversial town halls, etc.

Spam is spam. Whether it comes from Kenny Loggins on ELQ, Jesse Jackson at the BLG or Ron Paul and the Federalist Society.

Yes. Obviously, James = Emily Post of law school. Furthermore, any time you find yourself typing "Please forward this email to EVERYONE" in your email, you probably shouldn't send that email, much less forward it.

Hey, remember that time when a journal EIC, feeling aggrieved over a N&B post, wrote a four page, single-spaced response and asked every other journal (and several clubs) to forward it to their members? Good times!
