My Forward Policy

Forward Guidelines:
1. Forwards must be personal and sent because they reminded you of me and NOT me and the 1,000 other people in your address book that got crammed together.
2. You MUST fact check. Please don't send me emails intended to strike fear in the hearts of all that are not even true.
3. Do not send me anything that threatens death or bad luck for myself or the ones I love. True friends don't hex each other. If you feel compelled to send these things reserve them for enemies or just delete that part of the forward. Stop the madness!
4. Don't tell me to forward "if I believe in God" or insinuate that my faith is determined in anyway by my willingness to mass forward.
5. Don't send me any emails targeting a group of people. I will not send ANYTHING that has an undercurrent of grab your pitchfork and light the fire.
Bonus: If you MUST forward me something then a little personal note is fabulous...such as, "Hey Jen! I know you dig Wolverine. Doesn't Hugh Jackman look fabulous half naked?" Just a little something to show you really know me.
You have three chances to get it right. After that you get kicked to my S P A M box and must resort to good old fashion letters or a telephone to reach me.

you totally have the right idea. I have those policies...I have yet to make it known. LOL I just get annoyed, instead.
have a great day.

I agree....can I just forward this to my mom? She's the master forwarder. And, I constantly send her links back from snopes telling her the email was wrong.

LOL. I'm going to paint this on a building!

Jessica said...

Amen sister! Why don't people understand basic email etiquette?

Laura Marchant said...

My family knows they can send any forwards they like but I will never open them or ever read them, lol!

Here, here! I'm sending this post to my mother and mother-in-law, the queen and princess, respectively, of "Forwarding Supposedly Empowering Female Messages and Assorted Prayers That Actually Just End Up Annoying Me."

Amen sistah!!!

Amy said...

I was going to say Amen Sister but someone already did. So WAY TO GO! I am in total agreement! I especially despise the ones sending bad luck or some sort of hex - I always delete that part before I send it off. Thanks for stopping by and reading my tribute and leaving such a nice comment.
