Least appropriate use of departmental email

The nominees are …. yeah, I wish I had the time to come up with a shortlist, but it’s a no-brainer: the winner is one of our department’s admin personnel, who today emailed to the entire listserv a 7.5MB PDF advertising a house for rent in Roseville. Built in 1976, the 2,044 sf split-level home has been remodeled from top to bottom, and features “a HUGE eat-in kitchen,” 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, and “a sunroom overlooking the in-ground pool.” Every grad student should seriously consider paying $2,400 a month (plus utilities) for housing. Cuz, y’know, they have all that money and free time to entertain friends in their spacious back yard and pool.
