And I thought I’ve seen everything there was to be seen with Microsoft’s software.
I just took this screen-shot. On my FRESHLY INSTALLED Thinkpad.
If it wasn’t so sad, it would have been funny. (which it is)

And here is the lotus notes version. from a calendar entry request for information you only have 3 options:
Do you want to send this notice with these comments?
Choose Yes to send as is.
Choose No to send without comments.
Choose Cancel to continue editing.
Yes No Cancel
And if you accidentally pressed that possibility then you are in trouble as whomever asked for the meeting will get an email asking for additional information whether you like it or not.

IBM claimed to have fixed that bug in Notes 6, but I am using Notes 7 and it still has that bug. Whoever wrote that dialog box should be a trial lawyer. The dialog should add a 4th choice to just send the meeting chairman an honest confession of your fatfingery.
The only way out is to force kill the process, though it makes Notes unrunnable until you reboot again. Worked for me.
