Do you have friends who feel that they must send you warnings about men lying underneath your car waiting to slash your ankles, or "funny" photos of President Bush holding a phone upside down to his head, or a forward that will apparently grant you $1 million dollars from Bill Gates if you forward it to 227 people within 60 seconds of opening it?

StopForwarding.Us knows your pain, and they are here to help. Read:

Hi Steve,

One of your friends has sent you this message from StopForwarding.Us, a website that allows individuals to anonymously email their friends and politely ask that they stop the habit of sending forwarded emails or FWDs.

Please do not forward chain letters, urban myths presented as truth, potentially offensive jokes, videos or photos without being asked or first receiving permission. If you find something that is funny and it is clean and you genuinely think the recipient will enjoy it then foward it to that person only (not in an email blast to all your friends and family) and include a personal note about why you enjoyed it and why you think they will too. Avoid sending forwards to friends or relatives that you've grown distant with. It can be frustrating for the recpient when the only correspondance you have with someone is via impersonal, unwanted email.

For more tips on email etiquette, visit StopForwarding.Us/etiq.html

Thank you,
A Friend (via

I couldn't have said it better myself.
