Those scare me. Please advice people to put a stop to chain mail in the paper mail system also.

Thanks for posting. I despise chain mail.
Most of it preys on our insecurities. It is costly to all of us in many ways.
Most chain mail eats at your self confidence.
Most people forward them without deleted the prior email addresses so your email address is at risk for becoming subject to spam, etc.
It gets expensive for internet providers to process this mail. One chain mail can become millions of junk mail that is sent over the internet.

Wanted to forward this from Coach Jen & SparkPeople:

It's a violation of our Community Guidelines to forward any kind of chain letters. This includes things like warnings about email scams, or other kinds of games where you have to fill out questionaires about yourself. This wouldn't be a big deal if you were just sending it to one other person. But people are forwarding them to groups of people, and that's when the problems start.

So I would ask that you refrain from sending any forwards like this, and please pass the word along to your teams about it too.

Thanks!

Coach Jen
