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.

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

It’s used most commonly to denote “Hey, anybody I forgot to ping!”

And are there other 'special' words, besides 'All'?

Well, we do have HUGH and SERIES.

Those are special.

In fact, they are HUGH.

yes, that.

"All" is a very big subject. This thread could be the tipping point.

On behalf of All, I object.

It doesn’t really go to “All.”

If it did, the internet would break.

I use “all” when I am in a foul, PO’ed mood but don’t want to dump on anyone in particular or start a pi$$ing contest.

I want to register "All" as a screen name.

Ping to All equals a ping to me.

(Then I will rule the world!!!)

All wants to know why you would ping him/her?

All denotes mass, mass increases gravitational force, gravitational forcece compresses stuff.
And then the whole thread comes crashing down.
