Stopforwarding.Us Asks Your Friends To Stop Spamming
Simply entering their name and email address on StopForwarding.Us and clicking send will fire off an anonymous message asking them to give it a rest.
Has it really come to the point where we need to use an online tool to handle even this type of communication? What's next? Proposeto.me for the impatient girlfriend? Passmethesalt.com?
Hell, why not take it a step further and offer a service that will anonymously email another one of your friends and ask them to contact the offending friend. Or maybe their mother. Yeah, that works.
Think of all the time that person will spend wondering who sent the message. And what a great way to make someone feel like an ogre! "Oh god, I'm such a jerk that someone I like can't even ask me to stop sending forwards!"
Maybe you fear reprisal. Maybe you're ultra-PC. Who knows what someone's reason for using this service would be. I can't honestly understand the point. If this really is someone who's close to you, should you not just politely ask them to stop? Possibly even face to face, or at least on the phone? I don't get it.
Perhaps one of you - our readers - can explain it to me.
