Reply To ALL

It has been a common practice to email wedding invites to the dear ones who are far off and considered to be a good option to invite those whom you're just acquainted to but not close friends. It saves not only time but also money. Imagine the time consumed in writing down the exact postal address: the road, the cross, the main, door no... sticking stamps and posting them! Such tedious job. Most times, the invitations reach after the event is over. This has happened several times. With emailing, just by a single click, it eases the whole process.

While sending the invites, most of them forget to add the email id in the BCC(Blind Carbon Copy) and the problem arises. Few recipients lack basic ethics and send Reply-To-All and thus continues chain mails! Inbox filled only with replies to replies.. :/ Sometimes, it's very annoying to see such chain mails and time consumed in deleting them. Why can't the person just "Reply-To" instead of "Reply-To-All". Even in case of forwarded mails such as jokes, some funny pictures; Sender does a mistake by not adding emails in BCC. Few recipients start spamming the inbox with "Reply-To-All". It also leads others, whom you don't know, to send unwanted emails.

Reply-To-All is necessary in official mails so that the managers and the clients are well informed about the progress of the work assigned, bug fixed...

What is the necessity of "Reply-To-All" in the forwarded emails? Why do people learn such basic ethics?
