    I think I just got a scam email at my @Outlook mail id about my @netflix account being cancelled due to problems with the billing address. The sender email id is a random, shady name (which I didn't notice first) and they asked for the billing details again? What the hell.

    Here's an idea for @Outlook (not sure if @gmail has it): IF: the number of recipients goes over some threshold, THEN: pause before sending, cite potential privacy issue & ask if sender wants to shift the recipients to Bcc instead of Cc. (If this already exists, y'all lmk!)
