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!”

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.

It doesn’t really go to “All.”

If it did, the internet would break.

All denotes mass, mass increases gravitational force, gravitational forcece compresses stuff.

LOL.

I always thought it meant that the poster was inviting comments, or asking everyone to make sure they see the post when they read over the thread.

if one pings “All,” and then another member of “All” pings “All,” does it cause some sort of self-reinforing feedback loop? Couldn’t that be dangerous?

Welcome to FR, Uncle Ralph. I, too, used to wonder if pinging All would go to every FReeper on board. But then I also used to think, while still a lurker, that “pinging” someone made a little bell go off like you're in the kitchen cleaning your oven and “ding-ding” someone has called you back to your computer. I was told that this can happen but I have yet to figure it out. ;)

And now the F-word:
“Fie!” (pronounced “fy”) is a VERY useful word. A general expression of disgust.
Some examples:
“Oh, Fie!”
“Fie and fie again!”
“Fie upon it!” or “Fie upon that!” or “Fie upon you!”
(They didn’t say “Fie you” though, sorry.)

“Tush!” Used alone (unlike Fie above). Sort of a mild exclamation.
“Tush, sir! Surely you jest!”

“Go to!” Period exclamation often used the way we would answer an astonishing statement from a friend: “Get outta here! Really?”
Example: “The king is coming to this dungheap? Go to!”

I would encourage everyone to pick one they enjoy and get in the habit of saying it. It can become quite automatic after awhile. I use “God’s Teeth” a lot. God’s Teeth! This heat is killing me!”

That's a good question! I've been under the impression that it automatically pinged all the folks who had replied on that thread.

Maybe now I'll get an answer to my unasked question...........
