I get so many of these messages, in my mailbox, ( send this messages to 10 people in the next hour and you will get a surprise), Or send this to 5 friends and you will receive a blessing in the next 10 minutes. Do you believe in this, and if so have anything really happened like they claimed. I have sent a few and nothing happened.

I used to forward them, but just for the fun of it as I never believed in them anyway. Sure enough nothing ever happened, good or bad! LOL I eventually got tired of it and stopped forwarding them whenever I'd receive any. I guess those that sent them to me got the hint. Either that or they got tired of it too because now I don't get any at all! Whoo hoo! Happy mylotting!

I delete most of this stuff automatically, unless it is something that I think a few of my friends can get a good laugh out of because some of them are so stupid. (The chain letters, not my friends.)

I never forward them, and never open them either. I've repeatedly asked my family and friends to not send them to me but they don't listen. So, they are deleted when received. About 5 years ago I had opened one that a family member sent. She didn't realize it was infected with a virus. The stupid thing pretty much destroyed my computer. I lost everything. I learned a lesson on that one.

It depends, but 99% of the time I delete them. I dislike the classic chainmail that says something bad will happen to you when you break the chain, I feel like it's a stupid threath and it actually scares small children and some adults and that's why they sent it on.I think that's nonsence and that's why I don't forward then. Occaissonaly I will get an e-mail with not threath inside, just a lovely message about friendship and love that asks you to sent it around to your friends to let them know how much you care. No strings attached. Not sure if this meets the requirements for a chainmail but I do forward those from time to time.

Don't forward these mails, just delete or simply ignore them. Nothing special would happen to you if you keep on forwarding these - you're only wasting time and energy for these non-sense :/

Hi there Chevee No I never pass on chain emails although I did have one not long ago because it said that this young girl would benefit from it financially by passing it around because she had cancer or something and her poem was included so I thought what harm could it do!
