Need some advice on how to answer a bad forwarded email-


I don't know how long its been around, but I was forwarded a video about "Where is Monica Lewinsky now?" I had thought the dogs had been put to bed on it in Jan, and the video was posted in Jan- but I received the email late last night.

Basicly talking about things like if the Clintons are still devastating a womans life after ten years, what kind of things will they do to the country etc etc etc ad nauseum. It's really not worth posting.

The person knows I'm not a Hillary supporter, but I really find this disgusting. There are enough NEW issues to talk about and contrast without dragging up all this crap. The only thing I can think of is that it's a reaction to the whole Spitzer fiasco.

This person IS a friend, so for this one and perhaps future emails, have any of you had something like this happen- and if so how did you delicately tell them it's not wanted or needed?

3. She's kind of rabid-

Her and I have been friends for a while, a little over two years. I just don't want her to forward it to anyone else, I'm thinking maybe when she comes over Sunday we should just talk about it. She despises HRC, with a passion. This is one of those situations where I try VERY hard not to talk politics with her LOL. So I'm dreading it a little bit.

4. Here is what I do.
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 01:18 PM by OmahaBlueDog
1. Go to Snopes. See if they have a debunked version of the e-mail,2. If so, respond to all with the debunked version
3. If not, find a good anti-GOP/Bush video on You-tube, and send it to everyone on the mailing list.

Either way, this typically ends the e-mails to you.
