'Naughty' emails can land you behind bars

Beware before you click the forward button on that "naughty" email that just arrived in your inbox. It could land you in jail for five years along with a fine of Rs 1 lakh.

Just read this news article. It got me thinking, what the hell is wrong with people? Is filing a law suit the new in-thing?

Most of the forward emails have a Subject line, and it's usually evident from the subject itself that the email might contain explicit material. In those cases, one can just delete the forward, without even having to open it.

Yes in some cases, the subject might not make it clear, or perhaps the subject is missing or whatever, well you open the email, you find the content offensive, hell don't just run off and file a lawsuit! There are sensible options available. The easiest thing to do, is to let the person know that you don't find such emails amusing.

Make it clear that you don't want to receive such material again. That would - in most cases - be the end of story. All it would take for the sender, is to remove that particular address from his group.

You have to understand, it's not like Mr X was deriving sexual pleasure/satisfaction or (something along those lines), thinking about Ms Meenakshi reading a "NAUGHTY EMAIL". I do admit that the above scenario is not completely impossible (Who is to say what gets one off), but it's definitely a safe argument that it would be highly unlikely that 8 PEOPLE in the same office had such a unique kink.

I'd just say, PRUDE BITCH.
