how do you feel about people posting chain letters?there are some people that post this kind of crap in the comments of pages on sites and think that it's alright to do so.i told one of them that it's not what they are suppose to do and people that do it should "get-a-life",well they copped an attude and said that i should "chill".well they must not have read the T.O.S. of the site as most of them tell you that posting that kind of spam is against the rules and could get your account deleted.too bad most people aren't aware that if enough people report this kind of actions the offender will be removed and banned from the site.if your on a site and should see somebody posting these chain-letters(spam)would you report them?or would you just ignore it and let them trample your rights?

I don't like chain letters either. If you don't send it you will get bad luck or if you do you'll get a lot of money type emails are a pain. I don't report anyone but I just usually delete them.

Hey! When I was younger I liked them and kinda didnt wanna take the chance with bad luck . I am mostly talking about emails that say pass it on . Maybe it was a teen thing . I remember seding them to people on my buddy list and they well some were annoyed . I didnt get it but now that i am older i hate them LOL. I dont like anything telling you what to do or try this.

This is a discussion about spam.I think they might thanks for your T.O.S. Perhaps they did this on purpose,certainly they won't care about account being deleted,they would say I can easily sigh up for another and keep going on,actually Drop so a lot,but at least,I never met a spam here before.In my opinion,I think most of us here won't abuse them at all,even paying attention on it.That must be waste time. Audiences will be feel free to browse all stuff here until seeing spams.Just ignore,this is best rewards for them.The more complaint you do,the more exciting they will.Don't you think this is the really impacts they eager to here So let's it be

Hi ekimflow, Chain letters, well there was a time when i used to get them a lot... i used to love them where they would tell me to do this or that. I miss them as i dont know why people have stopped mailing them. I would get to see so many pics of gods or even beautiful scenes because of chain letters. About people sending their links well to be frank sites only say they would delete but usually dont because they too love the number of hits they get. Also it is up to you to read them or not. You can simply delete them without reading ..but i have got real good sites including mylot because of spam mails. I really do not understand why people would waste so much time fighting these chain letters while they would meekly submit to injustice at home or work or injustice done by the govt.

I think chain letter is only for bandwidth abusing. I don't think such chain letter is a good thing to distribute. But of course it depends on the letter content material. If it's all about something really important and can helping many people, perhaps it could be worth if we redistributing that chain letter. But if it only contains spam or junk material, then we should stopping the distribution. Actually i'm not a kind of person who's like to distributing chain letters. So i think if there's a chain letter come to me, it possibly will stop on me. Good luck and have a nice day. Happy mylotting.

Like others here I hate those damn chain things, being letters, emails or comments. Surely it is against the guidelines and to answer your question, yes I would report them definitely. I don’t know what drives people to forward them on; whether it is fear or they just like annoying everyone. Either way it is not acceptable.

Posting chain letter is a very irresponsible act especially the one that say certain people will die if that chain letter is not post again.When i see it in my email,i will delete it and scold the so call 'friends' that send me things like that.If i see that in a forum or some comment,i will not hesitate to report it the moderator.In my opinion,people who post chain letter is very childish and do not understand how irritating the chain letter is to other people.

Personally, assuming that the site in quesiton has a simple system to make a spam report about a particular post, I outright use it. I don't make comments, I don't warn the chain letter posters, I just use the report button straight away. I mean, I'm not sure of what's going on in people's mind... do they really believe that if they do not post that message ten times in certain places and they don't ring the door bell twice, jump on top of the bed once and a half and change the dog's name to Bartolomeu; then their mother is going to die!? What the hell drives people to spread these chain letters? WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!? *Sighs* It's obvious that most of these people are dumb to just be told to wake up to reality, not to mention that some are probably just doing this on purpose anyway, so might as well just report them and let them carry on. Eventually something will bit them on the butt, even if it's Karma coming to screw with them because they -did- posted those chain letters.

I hate chain letters of any sort, especially when they post on Youtube video comments and all that. But really, I can't be bothered telling them off or reporting them, which yes...is kind of non-community minded. The truth is that even if you report them and they get banned, they'll just keep coming back with another account to spam some more. So really, it's just extra effort that does nothing. xP I suppose I'm just a bit apathetic, but there you have it.
