Newby asks "Ping to 'All'"?

Posted on 06/19/2008 4:45:14 PM PDT by Uncle Ralph

In the 'pings' set in some comments, besides the expected member names, I have seen the word 'All'. Does that 'ping' the message to everyone who already left a comment on that thread? How about those who comment after? And are there other 'special' words, besides 'All'?

Thanks.

Before you may post this message, the following must be corrected:

* Could not find anybody named ‘null’
* Could not find anybody named ‘void’

You don't happen to be related to the Aleph Nulls, I take it?

They're very big in the mathematical community.

‘All’ does absolutely nothing. It’s a kind of vanity thing that ‘All’ might give a %$^&.

It's a little-known FR fact that "All" is short for "Allegra." I get all of those ^&%$# "All" posts and believe me, it gets really annoying sometimes.

:-p

Y’know, I’m not surprised that one might have the David Hasselhoff animation. What is somehow disturbing that one should have it so near at hand as to be able to post it so quickly ;-)

You think that's bad...Xenalyte has the Ultimate Nutball David Hasselhoff Ping List.

Want on it? ;-)

A few years ago, if you posted to “all” it would send your post to all that already posted to the thread. One day a while back it stopped working, but people still post to “all”.

Too bad Pinatubo ate it.

I was there for dinner. Pinatubo ate much more than Clark. Subic Bay was pretty much ingested also. Actually I think Pinatubo spewed on it. ;-)
