Put a Stop to Chain Mail sign now

Dear Users of the Internet,

If you are reading this petition, I can only assume that you have the internet, or in some way have internet access. I can therefore assume thata fairly high percentage of you have a personal, family or work email address. To those of whom who do, I would like to talk about chain emails.

That's right. Those emails you get saying "send this to 10 friends before the next full moon and you will recieve good luck. It was started a while ago with those chain letters. It has now moved into a more interactive form. However, this is one bad thing that has been granted to us via technology.

"Why do you so dislike them", I hear you say. Well, it's obvious when you think of it and read this sort of mail. First things first, chain emails are spam. That is that. Completely worthless messages that do no good to the earth. They have no real point whatsoever. Some of these messages are also worrying to read, offensive, annoying and downright rude. I don't know about others, but personally, I get so many a day it takes me some time to delete them all.

What has prompted me to write this petition? Well, two particular incidents that I have recieved in the last couple of days stand out head and shoulders above the rest. Firsly, a chain email forwarded to me which I considered offensive, and rather worrying. I quote "She received this letter...she didn't send it out to the 10 friends that she must...3 days later she went to a masquerade ball...she left to get her car to go home...she was killed on the spot by a hit and run driver".
Later in the email it states "If you do not send this to 10 friends bad luck will rear it's ugly head". Now how worrying could that be to a young person who takes it seriously?

The other case was when I recived a chain email from someone I did not know. I replied to it, asking her what was happening, and why exactly should I send it on. She replied with a rather rude message, part of which stated "You'd be best advised not to delete this -it's being tracked".

If you agree with me and would tend to consider chain emails as annoying, inconsiderate and rude, please sign my petition. You are the users of the internet - so you too should get a say on how it is managed and run. If enough of us sign the petition, we could get chain mail cut down, or even stopped.
