I recently had an experience where I had to send multiple reminders to someone in another part of the company for an answer they said they would provide. My last reminder included the fact that contract start date agreed to by them is no longer possible due to the delay in getting this answer. I finally got an answer from them today with about 8 emails in the chain debating their answer. Looking back through the email chain to see what the hold up was I noticed the line about the consequences of them not acting was removed from my email at the base of the chain.
Is it in line with business etiquette to edit content out of an email prior to forwarding it?
I can see a case for removal of sensitive info should the chain go outside of the organization but this was fully internal resources and that was not sensitive information.
