Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

MY NAME IS [INSERT NAME HERE]...I AM 15 YEARS OLD WITH BLONDE HAIR AND BLOOD SHOT EYES. I HAVE NO NOSE OR EARS. I AM DEAD. IF U DO NOT SEND THIS TO 15 PPL IN THE NEXT 5 MIN., I WILL APPEAR TONIGHT UNDER YOUR BED, YOU WILL HEAR ME.... AND SEE ME FOR ONLY A SECOND....... BUT WITH MY KNIFE..... I WILL KILL YOU.

THIS IS NO JOKE.......... SOMETHING GOOD WILL HAPPEN TO U TONIGHT AT 10:22 IF YOU SEND THIS TO 15 PPL. SOMEONE WILL CALL U OR TALK TO U ONLINE AND SAY I LOVE U.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE





Chain emails, one of the most annoying emails you can hope to get.
Whenever you receive one of these chain emails, what do you do with it? Do you forward it to everyone you know or do you delete it?

Whenever I see one of them in my inbox, I just delete it straight away. On some rare occasions where one person keeps sending them over and over again, I'll send it back to him/her, just for payback. I hate them with a passion.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I don't think anyone actually believes that the "consequences" of not forwarding a chain letter actually exist. Most of the people that I've talked to who forward them see it as more of a "what if" scenario. Which is still stupid.

But yeah, chain letters are a pet peeve of mine. I just want to send them a chain letter that I will make up that tells them to click a link to a special virus that I wrote. If they don't open the attachment, they will have their head chopped off in front of their whole family. That'll get 'em to download my automatically-inserts-the-phrase-"I am a moron"-after-every-sentence-in-an-email virus...

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I rarely see chain e0mails that much anymore, it is more like chain texts, which suck, because it wastes a text that I can use for the month....

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I've never gotten a chain-email before, but I'd just ignore it if I did. No point wasting my time forwarding a poorly written unfulfillable threat to 15 people every two hours. Or whatever their demands are.

I actually received 2 this morning, which annoyed me and made me think, why waste money on text messaging lots of people on junk like that?

I dunno but it pisses me off, cause I only have a limited amount of texts to use every month, and getting ones wasted with stupid chain texts annoys the **** out of me.

I'd be a lot more inclined to forward it if there was a disclaimer that the person telling me she loves me actually means it.

Having said that, I have never received anything remotely similar to a chain email, ever, and I kinda wonder how some people manage to get more than one per day. But if I were to get one, I would cherish it forever and always leave it in my inbox just to remind myself that I'm important enough to be sent chain emails. :3

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

Nothing on the internet pisses me off more than chain letters. I can't to any Youtube video without seeing one. I'd rather suffer the fate in the e-mail than stooping down to the level of forwarding it.

It doesn't matter what kind of chain message it is, I promptly delete it.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

It's been a long time since I've seen anything of that nature, but if I ever do come across one again, I delete it. It's trash not worthy of my sight, just like the person who thinks it was funny to start the damn thing.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I delete forward e-mails on sight.

I hate them so much, but I rarely get any from friends because they're smart enough to not send them. The only forwards I get are from spammers to my years and years old hotmail account. They are terribly annoying though.

I don't get them at all anymore, which I just kind of noticed. I'm thankful for it too; however, I have gotten a rare one, in which case, I delete them.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

Chain e-mails and texts are the bane of my existence. Needless to say, I forward them on so others can share in my misery.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I really hate chain emails! I send it back to the person who sent it to me saying things like "are you stupid, etc." chain emails are just annoying.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

my grandmother likes to send me chain e-mails consisting of funny palindromes ("dog doo, good god! how FUNNY") or word scrambles ("dormitory is like dirty room! it's like they planned it that way!") or a funny animal video.

whatever. I try to read those because it's, y'know, grandma and all.

I delete all the other ones without even opening them.

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I currently have 3292 unread e-mails. I don't even read my regular mails, why would I even bother with chain mails then?

Re: Chain Emails - Forward or Delete?

I've always deleted those kinds of chain e-mails and nobody has appeared to kill me yet, as these stupid e-mails so describe.
