I have a friend that doesn't email. At least, she doesn't email anything personal. Well, maybe twice a year. But once or twice a week she forwards a good handful of stuff other people have forwarded to her. Jokes, cute pictures, political commentary...etc. I always open them (just in case she has written something personal at the top), but 99% of the time, nothing. I'm okay with the jokes and cute pictures, but the political commentary drives me up a wall. And it's not necessarily the comments, but the fact that the comments have not been fact-checked, so things that are attributed to someone are more-often-then-not just flat out made up or twisted as to become lies. Who cares, right? I know I should just let it go. But it BUGS me. Telling her to stop the commentary hasn't worked in the past -- she apparently has trouble telling what is 'commentary' from 'inspiration'. But the last couple of things she sent, I just couldn't help myself. I fact checked, then returned them with corrections. In red. You know what? I think all she looked at was the subject line. Because not five minutes later, I got a (personal) email back from her saying, "Oh! I got that from someone else, too, this morning...but I didn't forward it to you because we've never really discussed politics." Hel-LO! I'm returning YOUR email! I know. I need to let it go. But it irritates me that people pass stuff like this around and are ignorant of the consequences of forwarding blind, without really understanding the content and if it is valid. Grrr.
