    Anything, ever, forwarded to me is deleted.
    Anyone forwarding me an email is warned, then if necessary blocked.

    I have three circles of email, my easily accessible account I use for web commerce, my more elusive account for work, and my secret one.

    I don't allow spam at any of them.

    Email accounts are like mailboxes, I keep mine clean.

    So you don't like my e-mails? I'm heart broken.

    Besides I talked to a guy that knows of a guy that talked to a guy that received money from Bill Gates

    If I get one I think is really funny, I'll pass it on. First I delete all the "you must pass this on or...." parts, then I delete all the email addresses already on it.

    Must be the cynic in me ........... but hate those and will positively not send them on - deletion is the way to go.

    As for ''good luck'' - and some mystical ''rich rewards'' -- hah ... baloney!

    Ha ha ha!

    I HATE those kinds of e-mails and DON'T pass them on!

    One of my former co-worker's is VERY supersticious (sp) and MUST forward 'poison pen' emails. They stop with me when I receive them.

    I'm STILL waiting for my Cracker Barrel certificate.

    I think you posted this because you wanted to get around emailing it and didn't want your hair to fall out.

    It was funny.
