    I have jusy received one of those emails from a friend, which tells me that if I don't forward it to a friend within one hour, that I will receive three years of bad luck.  It seems odd that it is now that for the first time ever, my hotmail will not allow me to forward any messages.  Would this worry anyone else?  Or are these messages rather silly?

      These emails are just trash and just ignore them.

      All such emails go right in the trash, as well as most other forms of chain-letters.  I will occasionally forward a particularly funny or interesting email to a few close friends, but never to "as many people as possible."

    These emails are just plain annoying and I've heard they are a way for scammers to get email addresses so they can send more annoying emails. Just delete them.

    Ignore them. I get a load at new year. I'm not superstitious and its the people they are that are at risk from them.

    Absolutely silly.  I ignore them and have to say my luck over the last few years has been great.

    My thinking is, if you're really my friend you won't risk the chance that I won't send your big, group, e.mail to someone else and maybe find myself facing 20 years of horrible luck.  Instead, you'll leave me out of your creepy-e.mails thing.  The same goes for those group-prayer e.mails and chain letters.  mad  (And while I'm at it, I don't want any of those e.mails that tell me to tell everyone else I know that I love them by passing along a form e.mail that someone else wrote/sent because whoever that stranger is thinks I need them to advise me about my personal relationships.  In fact, don't send me any jokes either!  mad  I may or may not look at e.mails with links in them, but only sometimes and only when I'm in the mood.
