    I hate eCards

    I despise e-cards (electronic greeting cards). However, I occasionally get them from people. How do I tell them to stop w/o hurting their feelings? I appreciate the gesture, I just want to discourage people from sending them.

    (Note, I am not talking about evites -- that's different, I like those.)

    I hate e-cards. Why not be more blunt, include an installer and say in the text, "here is a rootkit and botnet, install this crap, so some guy in a shack in Elbonia can get your personal info and sell it."

    From people I know, I reply in no uncertain terms that they are not wanted.

    I'm with you on evites though. Those rock. =)

    Good! I'm glad I'm not alone on this! I was afraid I would come across as bitter and cantankerous.

    I dislike them, too. But its usually mother artifice sending them, so there isn't much I can do.
    I can say I've been guilty of sending the occasional ecard as well...
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.
