Show me a business problem and I’ll do my best to avoid it
Jason Fried

“Every additional person you add to a conversation exponentially increases the odds of miscommunication happening.”

so why was the design decision to, by default, blast a new message to everyone in a particular basecamp AND position the visual representation of these recipients at the bottom of the message, where it’s an afterthought at time of send?

if avoiding miscommunication is a tenant, why not follow email best practices (set up recipients first), or at the very least expose that potentially huge list of recipients at the beginning of a message?
