Man Puts End To Email Forwards
Friday, March 19, 2010 17:58 GMTLONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) An end to those pesky, chain letter-style email forwards is finally near.
Everyone has a friend or relative who forwards mass emails filled with lame jokes or cheesy motivational pep talks. Luckily, their inbox is now safe thanks to StopForwarding.com.
The website sends that annoyingly fervent forwarder an anonymous email telling them that their emails need to stop.
Creator Phenappan Gee feels its a bit rude to tell people to quit sending forwards to their face, so he does the dirty work in a polite yet very direct way.
It seems to work because many grateful users have contacted him gushing over their empty spam box.
Though hes happy to solve the irritating forward problem, Gee admits hes still powerless against those other email offenders Nigerian princes and alleged beneficiaries since those spammers dont listen to polite pleas to go away.
