After reading the title, I anticipated something a bit more insightful. While the problems that come from a misclick of "reply all" are often numerous, the solution should not be to eliminate the feature outright. The increasing amount of complexity in our gadgets suggests that we should be able to find an alternative that both maintains the usefulness of the feature (i.e. timesaving) and reduces the chance of error. Perhaps a simple confirmation dialogue asking "did you -really- mean everyone, or just some people?" would suffice, or a way to retract sent emails (less enticing). Whatever the method, a bit more commentary (and less kneejerk) would have been nice here.

Conversely, kudos for probing the surface of an all-too-common problem.
