    Yes, I hate chain letters.  They are a load of crap when they say, forward this to 10 people or you will have bad luck for 10 years or something like that.  Sometimes, part of the email is interesting and if I really like the content, I will forward it to a few people...

    They're Stupid

    They're just bogus really. I'm pretty sure if they existed I would have died 50+ times now. I delete them when I read them, I don't talk to people who send me them, I don't humor them, they're just stupid.

    Chain Letter Emails? They're Silly.

    Chain letter emails are ridiculous. They're a waste of time. I don't believe in them. My grandma sometimes sends them to me. I just tuck it away in my family email files and forget about them.
