How to politely ask people to stop forwarding junk emails

Are you tired of receiving pictures of kittens and jokes you read a decade ago in the form of mails forwarded to you by your friends? We all are, but how do you tell these people to stop sending you junk without offending them?


A free service called StopForwarding.Com has a solution. Submit the person’s email address to this service and they will send an anonymous but polite email requesting the recipient to refrain from sending this type of email.

Here is the actual mail your friend receives:


One of your friends has sent you this message from StopForwarding.Com, the website that allows individuals to politely and anonymously email their friends and ask that they stop the habit of sending forwarded emails or FWDs.

Please do not forward chain letters, urban legends, potentially offensive jokes, videos or photos without being asked or first receiving permission. If you find something that you want to pass on and you genuinely think the recipient will enjoy it then forward it to that person only (not in an email blast to all your friends and family) and include a personal note about why you enjoyed it and why you think they will too. Avoid sending forwards to friends or relatives that you’ve grown distant with. It can be frustrating for the recipient when the only correspondence he or she has with someone is via impersonal, unwanted email.

Thank you,

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
