When emails were being introduced decades ago, everyone seems to be excited over this new found service. Gone were the days when one have to wait days or weeks to sent and receive messages.
Now, one can sent or receive mails instantly.
I remembered there was once I forwarded a condom advertisement to all those in my mailing list which included my Christian friends. It was an advertisement from Durex featuring safe sex by using condoms.
Unexpectedly, I received an email from my pastor reprimanded me of my actions. My intention was not asking my Christian friends to have sex, but I was thought otherwise.
I received all kind of forwarded mails be it junk, hoax, inspiring, educational and even XX.
I hated those junk mails especially with pictures of sick children. Their request to raise funds by forwarding to all your friends. I believed this type of mail is a hoax.
And there are mails I received saying that I won a USD 1 million. I thought I won...NOT! They need all your personal details and bank account in order for them to bank in the million dollars. This is another hoax.
Of course there are mails that are so inspiring and educational. It's good to share these mails by forwarding them. Some of them I kept in a folder for inspiring reading once in a while.
I've been getting XX mails with pictures attached from my ex-colleague. He doesn't filter to those he wants to sent. He's just forwarded to everyone in his mailing list. Of course, there are people who like receiving this type of mail, some will find it offensive.
Before I forward any forwarded mails to my friends, I will definitely filter all the offensives and unnecessary ones.
Ps. Been receiving any mails lately? What type of mails you loved to receive?
