• In most cases, yes! But if they are from this one friend, then I look forward to them. She totally knows my humor.
  • As insensitive as this might seem, I can't stand sympathetic forwards about sad things that happened to people I don't even know. I get them alot on myspace and it's kinda a downer when I've had a good day. Jokes and funny stories are always appreciated though.
  • Yep. Most everyone who knows my email address also knows not to forward something to me unless it's either *really* funny or very relevant to me. And they'd *better* have run it past Snopes first!
  • Not from friends. I get them from a number of friends. I started a joke-letter and cleaned up the grammar and forwarding crap, and sent IT out to friends. It's been a while, but I still receive stuff from family and friends. Here's a site with the first year or so of them (I will add to them at some point.) (Chain Letters, Urban Legends, Scams, and lies, I research and try to debunk. Some end up on MY website -
  • In general I don't like forwarded email, although there are instances in which it is appropriate to forward email.
  • I do not accept forwarded e-mails. I send them directly to trash. I do belong to a joke group, and I like to have my blog contacts share things, but not forwarded.
  • Hello, my name is Basmati Kasaar. I am suffering from rare and deadly diseases, poor scores on final exams, extreme virginity, fear of being kidnapped and executed by anal electrocution, and guilt for not forwarding out 50 billion fucking chain letters sent to me by people who actually believe that if you send them on, then that poor 6 year old girl in Arkansas with a breast on her forehead will be able to raise enough money to have it removed before her redneck parents sell her off to the traveling freak show. Do you honestly believe that Bill Gates is going to give you and everyone you send "his" email to $1000? How stupid are you? Ooooh, lookyhere! If I scroll down this page and make a wish, I'll get laid by every Playboy model in the magazine! What a bunch of bullshit. So basically, this message is a big FUCK YOU to all the people out there who have nothing better to do than to send me stupid chain mail forwards. Maybe the evil chain letter leprechauns will come into my apartment and sodomize me in my sleep for not continuing the chain which was started by Jesus in 5 A.D. and was brought to this country by midget pilgrims on the Mayflower and if it makes it to the year 2000, it'll be in the Guinness Book of World Records for longest continuous streak of blatant stupidity. Fuck them. If you're going to forward something, at least send me something mildly amusing. I've seen all the "send this to 50 of your closest friends, and this poor, wretched excuse for a human being will somehow receive a nickel from some omniscient being" forwards about 90 times. I don't fucking care. Show a little intelligence and think about what you're actually contributing to by sending out forwards. Chances are it's your own unpopularity. The point being? If you get some chain letter that's threatening to leave you shagless or luckless for the rest of your life, delete it. If it's funny, send it on. Don't piss people off by making them feel guilty about a leper in Botswana with no teeth, who's been tied to a dead elephant for 27 years, whose only savior is the 5 cents per letter he'll receive if you forward this mail, otherwise you'll end up like Miranda. Right? Now forward this to everyone you know otherwise, tomorrow morning your underwear will turn carnivorous and will consume your genitals.
  • I don't mind them. If I get stuff I don't like, I simply put them into "Junk", and I don't receive anymore from that sender. The ones I DO get are from a few family and friends and since we all think fairly much alike, they haven't seemed to be a problem.
  • I delete them immediately.
  • I delete all emails, and yes it does get to me sometimes.
  • No--the ones that make it through my filter come from my family or friends and I can delete or answer. Kind of nice to know they are thinking of me and lots of the jokes are funny. It's also fun to check out Snopes and debunk some of the urban legends that are going around. I don't, however, send on chain letters.
  • I sent out a notice telling people not to send "forwarded" emails. So I don't get very many of them.
  • no not really, as long as it's from someone I know
  • some of them I don't mind. It mostly depends on who sends it. I won't look at any of them that have some sort of attachment. And I hate getting political stuff.
  • Normally they're junk but from time to time there will be one I really like. I never forward them though.
