I never forward emails. I especially do not forward them if they promise impending doom or that my kitten will get a tummy rash if I don't send them to 10 friends. I don't have 10 friends, but even if I did, I still wouldn't do it.
Nothing bad has happened to me in the past 6 years of blogging and not forwarding.
I do, however, check them over for inaccuracies or falsehoods and make the appropriate corrections before publishing them as articles. For example, an email forward about ringworm treatment in Israel had so many lies and distortions that it required days of research to correct.
I have, as of today, posted over 125 email forwards here.
One of my regular readers, B.W. sends me the most email forwards which I enjoy dissecting and correcting before publishing; however the following email has left me speechless. I repost it here without comment:
Wait, wait. I can't do it without warning some of my more fragile readers. Do not scroll down if you do not have a strong stomach. I used to believe there wasn't a single good excuse for a woman to wear a burqa. I changed my mind. Proceed at your own risk.
Anyone may republish this article for non-commercial use without asking my permission. I make it easy, see details here.
