Please Learn The Rules.

Hi. You are probably wondering why you were sent here, right?

The person who sent you the link to this site feels that you have broken one of the rules of e-mail and imposed on either their privacy or their time. They are pretty sure you didn’t do it on purpose, and don’t want to offend you, so they sent you here.

The most common reason folks wind up on this page is sending an email to a bunch of people using the To: line of the message (as opposed to the BCC: line) thereby exposing someone’s e-mail address to a whole bunch of strangers. This is bad because e-mails tend to get forwarded and re-forwarded all over the internet with all the e-mail addresses included. Once this happens, one or more of those addresses will either fall into the hands of a spammer or wind up getting put on an e-mail list they would rather not be on.

If this doesn’t sound like something you did, other reasons for being sent here may include:

Regardless, if you take a moment and look back at the email that this person was replying to, the reason you are here will probably be pretty obvious.

Don’t worry! No one hates you or thinks you are a bad person. In fact, the person sending you here won’t even mind future emails from you – as long as you respect their e-mail address and their time.

Thanks for understanding, and feel free to respond in kind if the same thing ever happens to you. It really is effective and you're guaranteed to get a little warm fuzzy feeling knowing you helped a fellow human being learn an extremely valuable life skill.

All you have to do is copy and paste the text below:

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your message, but I think you might have have broken one of the rules.

Please visit: http://www.pleaselearntherules.com/

Thank you and regards.

PS - If the e-mail you sent was promoting a product or service, you might want to consider an e-mail management service such as Constant Contact or iContact. Both of them are easy to use tools to send professional looking e-mails and have the added bonus of tracking how many people are reading your messages and more. Even better, they both offer a free trial so you can see which one you like best. Neither are very expensive. Not to mention, they will make sure you are compliant with anti-spam laws and avoid any slip-ups like the one that got you here. :)
