Send this to everyone you know, including the person who sent it to you.

Every day, somebody on the interweb comes up with a solution to one of the niggling problems of daily life. You might not be aware of it yet, but right at this very minute--someone, somewhere is working on the dilemma that keeps you up nights.

StopForwarding.Us lets you politely and anonymously ask people to stop sending forwarded emails to your inbox.

Just enter the offender's first name and email address. They receive the following personalized, anonymous email message.

Hi Steve,

One of your friends has sent you this message from StopForwarding.Us, a website that allows individuals to anonymously email their friends and politely ask that they stop the habit of sending forwarded emails or FWDs.

Please do not forward chain letters, urban myths presented as truth, potentially offensive jokes, videos or photos without being asked or first receiving permission. If you find something that is funny and it is clean and you genuinely think the recipient will enjoy it then foward it to that person only (not in an email blast to all your friends and family) and include a personal note about why you enjoyed it and why you think they will too. Avoid sending forwards to friends or relatives that you've grown distant with. It can be frustrating for the recpient when the only correspondance you have with someone is via impersonal, unwanted email.

Thank you,
A Friend (via stopforwarding.us)
