E-mail is the most popular way to communicate across the inter-webs, but just like any other form of communication, there are some courtesies you should follow. Today, we're talking about BCC - the Blind Carbon Copy!
Fortunately, there's an easy and universal tool to solve this problem. It's called the BCC: field, which stands for "Blind Carbon Copy" - from the dark ages when everyone used typewriters. It usually appears beneath the CC: field, and might appear as a link in your normal display. Dump your 142 email addresses in that field, and presto! Now your recipients don't have to scroll through 142 email addresses to access the message, and everyone's contact information is protected. Everybody wins (except Nigerian spammers, and we're ok with that).
