Like many people, every time I open my e-mail inbox, I inevitably find some form of spammy forwarded e-mail that promises my immediate death and dismemberment if I fail to pass said spam e-mail on to 15 other people in the next three seconds. And, like many people, I promptly delete these e-mails without a second thought as to stopping their flow from the source.

StopForwarding.Us is a free service to help stop the flow of spam forwarded e-mails from people we know. And rather than a profanity-laced rant, it does so politely and clearly. In the e-mail that is sent to the spammy offender, explains why forwarding spam e-mail is undesirable and offers more favorable solutions for the user to pass along entertaining e-mails.
