  • Yes, those are crazy; just like the old chain letters people used to send out.
  • Yes I do. I too delete them immediately. Such a waste of cyber-space and my time! After years I have finally convinced one of my 2 friends who believe in them to take me off her list. Only one more to go.
  • I totally delete them , and then just deleting all mail that even looks like thats what it is -- + 5
  • I delet them. they drive my nuts.
  • Though they are annoying and I don't like seeing them, it's interesting to think about where they originated. I imagine there is at least one of these chain letters that has been around for years. That's cool.
  • I delete straight away and always have done ...they are a load of crap that feed on peoples fears of what might happen
  • they are useless... i hate chain emails and chain texts.. i delete right away ..not worth my time to even read..a waste
  • SOmetimes there are quite nice messages and then someone attaches a chain threat at the end. I hate that. It is just using pressure and fear.
  • I send them back to the sender if it asks to, but I don't know why anyone sends them on. It's really a burden to others.
  • I never answer them. I dislike them too. How do you prevent them Da ben?
  • I delete them. They make me never want to give my e-mail address to anyone ever again.
  • Yes I do hate them, and I never send them on!
  • Don't like them and they are illegal
  • Chain mails are just stupid. As if some thing good or bad will happen to you for reading some text on a screen.
  • Those annoy the hell out of me....I just delete them. What I find most annoying is, a lot of my friends/family who send them believe something bad really will happen if they don't forward. Someone will die, or, if you don't forward, that means you don't love Jesus, etc. Come on!!
  • I delete all junk email without even opening it!
  • I seriously hate those emails and delete them as soon as I get them.
  • I don't hate them but would not believe in them. I will read through quickly provided of course they are not too long and then delete them.
  • i like replying with things like "if you dont punch yourself in the face 15 times ill come and do it for you." they drive me totally nuts especially if people in your address book fall for it and you are swamped with the same message from all your mates.
  • I can not stand those foolish thing. It is my mother, she sends them constantly. I just can't bring myself to block my own mother, but argh.
  • So you're the one that stopped the chain and killed my mother. :< For shame. (I hate phone chain text messages worse.)
  • I HATE them. I got a brilliant email today, though. From Mr. Romanus Kargoura. He says he'll share the money he found in an abandoned plane, which belonged to an American guy, who died alongside his whole family. I get 40% I'm very excited.
  • Marketing firms hire specialized marketing firms to create chain letters that feed on patriotism, sympathy, guilt & religion. Using imagery and usually totally concocted stories of woe they ask the recipient to please send this on (if you love America, If you don't want a little girl to die, or if you're a "real" Christian). So people do and all these email address and any personal information is gathered and sold to the marketing firm who in turn sales it to corporations. These corporations then use this info for junk mail and other unsolicited crap. So if you're a real Christian American who doesn't want little Amy to die before she signs a petition to keep "In God we trust" on our currency and you want to use your first amendment rights to say no to junk mail then you should send this message of truth on to everyone you know!
  • I delete them for the most part. If I see that they are coming from someone who is new to computers though I send them a link to about.com so they can do some reading.
  • Oh man.. how I hate such emails and those people who would forward it.
  • I DETEST them! Only because one time I didn't send out the email to more than 10 people and I lost my girlfriend and my job within a week! So...please send this reply to 10 friends...
  • I absolutely abhor them! What about those of use who don't have 10 people we want to send the letter to? At the bottom of my last one: For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us...go ahead and delete this. For the rest of us...pass this on. WOW! Now I have to worry about God hating me for not sending this on..... I wish these people would spend their time researching something. Send the message of what they have learned to their friends. And then, if people choose, they can send meaningful information on to their friends, but not under guilt of no conscience or worry of God's judgement or "something bad" happening to them. I really, really hate these friggin' emails.
  • simply send reply to all that "please do not send any chain mails once again and dont circulate it around !!,its just a waste of time" and after that i will delete that mail :)
  • I make a point of never reading them. They're a nuisance and little better than spam.
  • What I really hate is receiving such a message from someone I know and trust, and reading it carefully thinking "Gee! Billy would really enjoy this." or "Wow! This would do Sara SOOOO much good!" only to get to the end and see that @%$*+^# message. I have thought of compiling a list of my 10 worst enemies so I could forward these things to them, but I decided that I don't dislike ANYbody that much.
  • I just send it back using a mail bomber to freeze the email account or send it to abuse@theirisp.co and they'll usually get banned
