THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A VIRUS. CAN PEOPLE PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ASKING TO BE REMOVED? YOUR REQUESTS ARE GOING OUT TO EVERYONE. JUST STOP AND THE PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED.

A message from a person on a Columbia Journalism School email list • Reacting to the disastrous reply-all thread, which started when a person replied to the message, asking to be taken off the list, only for the realization to be made that every reply also went out to the entire list. Fortunately for everyone involved, a Deadspin writer was also on the list—and he egged it on. (via shortformblog)

YES! The responses, especially as they became more and more frantic were by far the highlight of my Friday. I’ve never been so delighted to be on a random email list.

Freelancers are second-class journalists—even if there are only freelancers here, in Syria, because this is a dirty war, a war of the last century; it’s trench warfare between rebels and loyalists who are so close that they scream at each other while they shoot each other. The first time on the frontline, you can’t believe it, with these bayonets you have seen only in history books. Today’s wars are drone wars, but here they fight meter by meter, street by street, and it’s fucking scary. Yet the editors back in Italy treat you like a kid; you get a front-page photo, and they say you were just lucky, in the right place at the right time. You get an exclusive story, like the one I wrote last September on Aleppo’s old city, a UNESCO World Heritage site, burning as the rebels and Syrian army battled for control. I was the first foreign reporter to enter, and the editors say: “How can I justify that my staff writer wasn’t able to enter and you were?” I got this email from an editor about that story: “I’ll buy it, but I will publish it under my staff writer’s name.”
