Taliban Email Fail

Revealing a "human" side, a Taliban spokesman accidentally exposed their mailing list by not using proper email etiquette. I did this myself once (and only once!), so I sympathize - as much as one can with the Taliban. When you send out email "blasts" to a number of addresses, you would use the "BCC" field (Blind Carbon Copy), meaning recipients can't see who else the emails went to - well, the spokesman used the "CC" field instead (Carbon Copy), which shows all the recipients to all the other recipients. Oopsie.
