The cc'ing bastard: If you're the type of person who needs something from me, ask me directly. You'll find I'm quite responsive to any request. What really gets my goat is if you're the type of person who has to cc my boss, my boss's boss, and hell six or seven other people in an effort to get your problem noticed. You'll find that I don't respond any faster or slower, it's all a priority for my anyhow. All you've done it got yourself on the list, and a note on my blog about how you deserve a beatdown, in front of your boss, and your boss's boss, and six or seven other people.
