Same here. My Mom is my biggest sender of chain mail. She forwards on every single one she receives. And while most are cute with pictures of adorable animals or some jokes or riddles in them, or just pretty landscape pictures....all of them end the same way: Send this to 10 of your friends in the next 10 minutes or ....(insert bad thing) will happen to you.
I guess I don't really mind getting one from a friend once in a while when it strokes my ego a little bit. Then I tend to send it back to the sender. Funny ones lighten the day a little. But I agree, they can become a constant barrage that substitutes for real communication.

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival. ~ Wendell Barry
