Stamp  -  Chain Letters = Spam by fmr0 Stamp  -  Chain Letters = Spam by fmr0
Stamp -- "Chain Letters = Spam"

(99 X 56 pixels) - PNG with transparency

Stamp created in Photoshop

:bulletgreen: free to use :) :bulletgreen:


------------------------------

How to deal with Chain-letters:

As simple as this:
NEVER READ THEM - to start with! ;-)
Never answer
Never forward - please do not spread that plague!

Then:
Hide it
It is a good thing to hide the comment containing the Chain-letter,
because first it is very annoying for your visitors,
and secondly naive people will not be tempted to read it!

Finally:
Optionally, you can also report spam and/or block the user who is spamming you;
and last but not the least you can also report it to the dA administrators.

To the people who do it, it's not against the rules if you don't get caught.

A lot of things are "against the rules".
Yet it does not seem to bother some people!

That happened to me once over at Fanfiction.net. Somebody used my review box to put up a Chain Message.

If chain letters were real, I would have died in 2nd grade. It's been 5 years and I'm not dead yet!

I remember someone told off the person who did a chain letter.
her response: I don;t do what strangers tell me to do!
she then proceeded to insult the other's avatar.
My reply: Then by your logic you shouldn't have even re-posted this chain letter because it likely was sent by a stranger.
She hasn't responded since.

Ha ha!  Good story! ;-)

You have proven to that girl who was posting chain letters that she was stupid.

She did not realised that she was contradicting herself. 
She was not even able to follow her own logic! 

I bet that you will never hear of her again!!!  :lol:

Then there's the chain letters about hackers that often I've seen before; it's someone trying to scare the community. It's sad when people fall for it.

Since I blocked that spammer, she came back under another identity!  (her brand new account)   pffft!

She probably thought I would not be able to recognize her.  :lol:

dang!  4 new spams!    (the same spam every time)


Now, it really starts to be annoying.

This girl is as sticky as flypaper!

Chain letters are so pointless... I've probably ignored at least 20 of them and I haven't been killed by a dead girl yet.
Reply
:iconfmr0:
fmr0 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2013
I ignore ALL of them.        Don't you ignore me revamp
Systemically!

I cannot possibly remember how many I have ignored;
I just do not care, that's all!

They are like "dog's cakes" on the pavement.   :shithappens: rvmp
 
I can spot them and "smell" them by a distance;
and I don't need to inspect them or analyse them to know their true nature.
They are just plain s***!    

So, I just avoid them.
As simple as that.

ALL CHAIN LETTERS ARE THE SAME! DX its annoying.

Even though it is impossible because they'd have to read this chainletter these people had a wish come true *insert looooong borring story here* 

Now that you started reading this you will die if you don't finish this *inserts long borring "proof" that is merely words that can be proven wrong here*

now then scroll down and make a wish 

*insert loooooong wave of random symbols that make a picture mostly made of some symbol wave mostly periods*

Here's a bit of lyrics from Weird Al Yankovic's "Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me" that is about the matter:

"...and I highly doubt some dead girl's gonna kill me if I don't pass your letter along"

But then how do you know if they're a chain letter?

Call it intuition if you want! :)

But seriously you don't need to be a genius to recognise a spam-letter when you see one!
Spam at first sight!!!  

I don't need to read it, because I can smell a rat!

I honestly find the "Tag a quality deviant" or "send this to someone you love" messages to be spam too. But chains certainly are the winner in this competition.

:iconfmr0:
fmr0 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
Yes, you are absolutely right.
The tag "thingies" are quite annoying too.
They are as impersonal as anything that is just forwarded, and most of the time they are pretty silly.

Furthermore, there are so many other ways, and much better ways to express friendship...
