    @mcpli Dunno. In 2016, a distribution list error at NHS Digital resulted in all 850k NHSmail users in England receiving an email. The reply all chain resulted in 500 million emails being sent in 75 minutes, users locked out of Outlook Web and some messages being delivered 6+ hours late.

    @Nash076 I don't know your stance, so I am not assuming here. I just personally think someone who's social opinion is to obnoxiously berate people with the most basic outlook of "they did bad stuff and aren't on my side so they must be deplatformed they are terrible humans!" Are childish

    There was this issue early on in the company I work for that because I existed in the same room as this other gay employee, the rumor was that we were *******. But, no we weren’t, and this guy’s personality and outlook on life would’ve been a huge turn off even if we weren’t-

    @BrianReidC7 @GThomas1970 @stevegoodman Not my experience. If you have hybrid and you have C2R - I think you are at a high likelihood of experiencing this issue. I'm waiting on the response from the @Outlook team about that, as I suspect you are too.

    $NVDA still has abysmal fundamental outlook. Even AFTER it's been cut in half. Problem is, on Fri it sent the Outside Day bat signal for the Momentum Bears that another crushing blow was imminent. So, today you have the Costanza 'Opposite' Algos trying to scare them. Good luck.

    @Outlook Something went tragically wrong with the new version update or whatever. Fix it or go back to the version so we can use it. 54 days no bounce back, client can't fix it!

    The outlook depends on what's causing the problem. Most people do well with treatment to treat the symptoms & the underlying disease. People with severe hemoptysis (coughing up blood) may die.

    True of both companies and people: the easier their problems seem to fix, the *worse* the long-term outlook. If they can't even fix an easy problem themselves, there's something fundamentally wrong that an outsider can't solve. Expect little progress anywhere
