I posted a topic in our Announcements category. A few groups are automatically watching the first post of that category, but every once in awhile I want everyone to receive something. This was one of those cases, so I mentioned @trust_level_0. I’ve done this before and it works fine.
Unusually, in this case, I had to reply to the original announcement. (This was the only reply.) I neither wanted, nor expected everyone to receive a notification about this post. I only wanted to add some information to the topic for those looking for it later.
However, 25 users received an email notification about my reply. It looked like this the Emails > Sent screen in the control panel:
Why did this happen? And what can I do to prevent it from happening in the future?
(P.S. Discuss the question I am asking, not whether sending a notification to all members is a good idea. That’s another discussion.)
