I vote to fill the seats with inanimate carbon rods and set up their emails to auto-forward to the person that needs the info. You can add in a random deletion/no reply to give it the 'human touch'.

Hmmm.  Sounds like some of the places I have worked...

Future of Work

Disruption lies ahead

A LCol was the only one dumb enough to leave their ranks on the CADPAT when it went to the laundry...
