Forward

I’m over being steamed and am happy to say that I no longer get any forwards  I don’t want. I have been cleaning up my own address book and found many addresses in more than one place so make sure when you clean out your address book you go through the entire alphabet!

I’m cleaning up my computer the best I can so my brother doesn’t have a lot of stuff to deal with while I’m on my trip. Please, don’t forward unless you are positive it’s something I care about.

I don’t care about religion, or politics. Really. Take that any way you want. I DO care about cruelty, animals or people, it’s the same to me. I care about art, craft, writing, creative expression. I got a forward once on an artist who paints his hands. original, beautiful and I loved it. I also a forward on some crap about some politician  and I resented the time it took me to realize what the forward was and delete it. THEN I started getting emails from the political site that the forward had come from so I had to take time to find the unsubscribe link.

Anyway, this is just to remind everyone to please, be as considerate of other people’s time as you are of your own. We have only a certain amount, and none of us knows how much that is. Let’s not waste any of it.

forward-don’t forward

OK, I am steamed. I don’t have a lot of time to spend on the computer so anything that slows me down really heats me up.

Like everyone, I get “forward” messages. One person who apparently forwards EVERYTHING he receives sends me stuff. Lots of stuff.

First I politely asked him to take me off his mailing list. The mail kept loading in my box. I asked again-all caps-and he replied that he had taken me off his mailing list. The mail kept coming. I have been opening each item (a major time waster) and hunting for the unsubscribe link. Some of them are obvious, others make you send an email…more time wasters.

I am asking him AGAIN to take me off his list because I can see the long list of people that he is forwarding to and my name is there.

My point is this: IS IT NECESSARY TO FORWARD???? PLEASE, think before you forward. Don’t just hit the “forward to everybody I know” button-think about WHO you think would be interested in reading the mail you think is so important. If you think it takes too much time to SELECT your forward addresses-understand that is exactly what you’re doi to many of the people on your mailing list.

By the way, if anyonehas any suggestions I’m open.
