Emails I hate

No,not all forwards because some are really encouraging and uplifting. However, I absolutely dislike the ones that threaten you with death or worse if you ignore the fwd button. Pornography is another that I could do without receiving but these days a lot of people are intent on sending me some hardcore porn.

Lately, the in thing is forwarding pics of road fatalities and murders. I usually tell my friends not to send me any pictures of persons bleeding out but my pleas fall on deaf ears. It never ceases to amaze me how persons are so quick to photograph these images and quickly pass them around. Right now,there are some pictures making the rounds of some young man whose throat was supposedly slashed. According to those who have sen them it appears as if they were taken with a cell phone. I really do hope that phone was used to call for help before those pictures were taken since from all reports the subject is still alive.

I know it is nigh impossible to prevent persons from taking photographs. Can't we at least offer the dead a little dignity and not photograph and display them in what is not their finest moments?

Hello, I like this blog.
Sorry not write more, but my English is not good.
A hug from Portugal
 
Sigh, Portugal has never once hugged me...
 
Don't hate Chris.I never had a million hits:)
 
porn!! and you wun share. shame on you :-)
 
Here, here!Fowrded emails can get to be a real pain so I mostly ignore them, but I immediately click on a message with a title like "hey, how's it going?"

I think TV has given us taste for the gory, it's also made us not so sure of the difference between what's real and what's not.
 
It's all about everyone trying to get their share of You Tube fame and that's the sad reality. Just delete the porn, you can usually tell from the subject line and send the ones with the cute fellas to me. :-))
 
I also dont want to see murders and fatalities. I delete those emails without looking at them. Why people want to be sensational over somebody else's tragedy I don't know.

Kami, please change the link to my blog. I am now a dot net instead of a dot com. Had to purchase a new domain.
 
I usually delete forwards right away. I found your blog linked to Jdid's site. My husband is from St. Vincent. I wouldn't be surprised if you knew him. Billy seems to know everybody.
 
I'm totally with you on this Abeni! Most of the time I don't even bother to read them, seriously.
 
Welcome Quel.

Stunner,not all fwds are bad.

Camp..why would I wanna share the cuties?:)
 
Sigh...a woman afta my own heart. The macabre forwards are so disrespectful. Here, they have a tendency to forward pics so that the fass gossip mongers can see who died. Makes me paranoid about digital photography and having my picture taken.
