The 10 Types of People in Email Threads

The Invisible Commenter

This person has very little clout amongst his peers. Whatever he says goes widely unrecognized and, for better or worse, he will continue to contribute to the thread. His comments aren't bad, but neither are they insightful. He adds to the thread sporadically and, although no one really pays attention to what he has to say, his participation is important for keeping the thread active, especially when there's a string of bad suggestions or ridiculous comments.
