    Group Texts for Reporting VT

    Anyone else's Relief Society send out group texts asking for reports on that month's visiting teaching? I do, and I have opinions! Group texts in general are a lousy way to have a conversation. They're great for announcements ("the activity is cancelled due to weather") but not correspondence ("who all is going to the activity?"). There are too many people who manage to "reply all." I don't think some people realize they are doing this, and/or can't figure out how to turn it off. Or maybe they've upgraded and didn't realize they needed to do it again. Should I ever find it necessary to respond to the sender, I open a brand new text and address it to the individual. My YW complain about group texts and chats from their peers so often that I've stuck to my promise to not send them, and I prove it by addressing them individually. At any rate, there is currently no possible way (on my phone, anyway) to block the receipt of messages sent to multiple numbers. Oh, that there were! So, I don't like group texts in general. But I have particular beef with using them to obtain VT reports, mostly because reporting VT can sometimes involve sensitive information, they very kind that should NOT be sent through group texts.
