Time for another biased poll.
Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?
I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

@gudenau prediction that this will end up being generational, because i can imagine the acronym being mystifying if you were born after the reference stopped existing :)
@robey Also depends on parents telling children about these things. Carbon copies still exist for some things.
@attilakinali @robey @gudenau All health care workers' receipts in BE are mandatory carbon copy documents. Which means they have to use impact printers and sometimes even typewriters.
I do agree these are not the real thing, as they don't rely on an externally supplied piece of carbon paper, but contain paper coated with a non-staining thin transfer layer on the back.
ncc is "no carbon copy". it's implemented by putting a name and address on the cc line, but not actually sending the cc to the person in question.
@gudenau :p got ya. i thought most people knew what that was. hope your having a good evening though?
@gudenau bummer! hopefully that improves. here i cannot figure out what to do with my evening, i made a song, i eh, it is so weird not being in a relationship since 2008, i feel like a capable rudder without an ocean to pilot a boat through, at many junctures. feeling existential. heh
@gudenau yay, I was right! I’m in my early 30s and only use IRL carbon copies when they come attached to a form, if that helps anyone wondering about generational differences
@gudenau Carbon copy and Blind Carbon Copy. (The teachers at my elementary school were adamant about learning about this stuff)
@gudenau I voted "yes" even if I didn't know what BCC was, because I assumed it was the english equivalent of CCI (and it is) (and I know what CCI stand for)
@gudenau I said yes but the replies are saying it's carbon copy, so I guess that's a no cos I've always known it as courtesy copy and blind courtesy copy
@gudenau Only because we had a mini unit in high school on protecting your privacy on the internet. One of the things it recommend was BCC-ing recipients so you don't leak other people's emails to everyone.
