Ask change.org to stop unethical usage of 'RE' in email subjects
This petition had 6 supporters
Change.org is sending email to their users asking to sign petition. In that email they are using 'RE' in subject of the email. This makes an impression that it is a reply to a previous email This is a tactic done by chane.org to increase the email open rate. But an organisation like change.org doing this tactic is questionable.
That said, common usage is that when "RE:" is the beginning of an email subject line it specifically relates to a reply, and using it otherwise will probably be confusing to email users, many of whom may not be familiar with the term's history or denotation.
Please sign this petition to ask change.org to stop using this 'RE' tactic on users.
