Used to define an email thread that becomes unmanageable, unending, and painful. A defining element of any circle swirl, is the fact that the initial question is gunned down by eroneous crap; causing the person w/the inquiry to leverage telephony to address the problem.
Darrin emailed his colleague Eileen for assistance with a work related problem. Unfortunately, Darrin cc'd his project team and an email swirl ensued. Darrin had to finally call Eileen directly, to obtain the needed response.
