Default PM Chainmail

Hey guys

Recently, I've been getting a lot of Chainmail (Forwards) in my PM inbox. It's really sweet messages, but frankly they get kind of annoying. I get clouded with a bunch of PMs, all the same thing usually. I've notified mods but I still get them.

It's not like an email people, where you can just press a button and delete them. Now I dont have much time on my hands and it takes longer to delete. I know to some it may seem like something small, but it really bothers me.

Just FYI, I dont do email chainmail either.

I'd like to get your guys' opinions on this.

To all you guys who like to forward messages like this: They're really sweet and I appreciate the sweet messages, but please don't send it in the form of chainmail.

Hi smurfette and fellow WI'ers! I wanted to ink this on the first post instead of my post getting lost down the thread. PM chainmails are against WI rules. Simply do NOT send them. Thanks for bring the subject up - smitchell

I think you're right. I can understand that it gets annoying after awhile.

Actually, its spam...and we do not allow spam on WI.

If you receive a chainmail via pm on WI, please forward it to a moderator. We will ask all who are participating not to do so again.

Thank you, Fairlyoddmom. It is really good to see it from your standpoint. Now everyone will know that it is wrong. It may seem like harmless fun, but like Smurfette says, when time is at a premium, you can't be erasing your PM's and profile messages. Anyone on a Gift Exchange has to keep their Inbox pretty well open. If it gets plugged up with chainmail, they can't trade.

I really have only gotten one or two. I understand what you are trying to say and I fully agree. Even though the chain letters are kind and sweet, they tend to be annoying, especially if you get them so much, that you know what they are going to say.
I would probably just tell the person that sent it to you, to stop. That way you will not get anymore.
