I think in this case the executive secretary should have considered that the daylight savings message was not a critical message and should not have included those who had set their visibility to private. The leaders that can send messages to everyone, including those who have set e-mail visibility to private, should be sensitive to those settings. Only critical information that must reach each member should be sent this way. If a member does not want any e-mail messages they should not list their e-mail address. After all, it is optional.geowizrd wrote:[W]hen the ward executive secretary sent out a broadcast email (about daylight savings time, no less) the member was upset that the settings were not honored (because of the exec sec's calling, which appears to auto-include opt-outs)
