I found a news story that I thought you guys might like. Here is the opening bit (you can find the rest through that link):

Max Wiseltier, a sophomore at New York University, was simply trying to forward an email from the Bursar’s Office to his mother on Monday. Instead, Wiseltier accidentally hit “reply to all,” cc’ing 39,979 of his fellow NYU students in the process.

Wiseltier, realizing what he had done, fired off a quick apology. But his email “triggered a rare, University-wide revelation,” Kelly Weill wrote in NYU Local, the student newspaper. “We simultaneously realized that any message, complaint, whim, link, video, or GIF could be sent to nearly 40,000 people in an instant.”

And thousands of students did.

Did you read the whole article? Because the part in quotes is only the beginning. I linked the rest.

I did.
So what I got was:
They realized there was a “Reply All” button.
