Fwd:

My sister has been hectoring me on the phone about not staying in touch with her. It's been a running theme since before Yule.
So I come back with, "Well, it's not like you call me or email me or write me, except to tell me what a deficent communicator I am."
And she says, "I email you all the time!"
No, she doesn't, at least not to my mind.
My sister is queen of the Fwd:
Every message/electronic chain letter about friendship, or love or God(in the monetheistic sense) or stupid jokes that have been circulating on the internet like a rotten turds in the toilet bowl, these are the emails she emails me "all the time".
And she doesn't email me anything else. No weekly updates on how things are going with her and her children. Not even a line at the beginning ot the Fwd:  to say, "Hey, I thought this was funny/moving/touching/beautiful and wanted to share it with you"

To be clear,I don't hate Fwd: from my friends. Because my friends know
A)what I think is funny/moving/touching/beautiful/ important
B) how to communicate/write/call/Pony Frigging Express without Fwd: someone else's thoughts and feelings.

Electronic chain letters are not communication. Not all by themselves.
