  • I have another gripe. How about when the many-times-forwarded joke contains e-mail addresses of five million recipients--including your own--displayed for all the world to see? Blind copying, anyone?

  • C-B...maybe your friend could also print out the joke and bring you a copy as well. That way, you have all the senses covered. :-)

    I sure missed you...

  • Hear, hear! The 'reply all' button should be so much harder to use.

  • And then there are those, copied on said list of chain-emails and jokes, who stupidly click "reply all" to say something like, "That's funny!" I get emails from total strangers. WTF?

    It's an easy thing to click "delete," and that's what I usually do. Recently, though, some stranger clicked "reply all," and then somehow managed to send me two or three new messages. This will not do, I thought, and politely suggested that he remove my name from his list. And he got all up in my face! "Not my bad," he said. Uh... exsqueeze me?!

    Edit: skipvia, the worst is when they ask you if you read them--"Did you see that joke I sent you?!"--because then you can't just guiltlessly delete. I work with someone who sends me a joke, then comes over to ask if I'd read it, and tells me the joke verbally.

    What a clinchpoop.

  • I know, c_b. After all, they're just trying to be nice. My cousin does it all the time, and I can't bring myself to ask her to stop.

  • Presumably those people who delight in forwarding chain-mails, including jokes &c, had some kind of gap in their lives before email was invented. Or maybe they're just tossers.

  • And then I feel like a jerk for asking (politely!) to "please stop sending me jokes"...

  • An increasing problem on social networking sites such as Facebook; unsolicited spam generated by applications that require you to invite friends to try the application before you can use it. I'd also apply the term to jokes that have been forwarded so many times that the message indents take up most of the page...
