To whom it may concern:

I have received countless email forwards over the years. I probably get 5 -10 forwards a day and inevitably they end by telling me that if I do not forward these emails on to at least 10 more people that I am not Christian, not American, not human, the earth will fall of it's axis, I will contribute to global warming, I will have funded terrorist regimes, children in China will die, Barack Obama will kick me in the crotch, etc.

I have decided that for every email I receive that ends this way, I am not only not going to forward it on, as is my usual routine but I will be answering them all.

Effective immediately I will be giving my full scale opinion on the contents of every forwarded email received that concludes by somehow threatening or challenging my patriotism, Christianity, humanity, etc. Some of you have experienced this already.

You may of course continue to forward emails to me however this will be taken as a request on your behalf to hear whatever incoherent ramblings are rattling around in my head regarding the stated matter.

I do not mind a forwarded email that makes me laugh, invites me to think or is religious or political in nature. I often forward these on to selected individuals myself. It's the emails that end in threatening language that wear me out.

Signing off, this the 101st day since the Gulf oil crisis.

I know what you mean! I often just delete those emails, but then some of them say something that I like...until the end!! Good luck! Let us know how it goes!
