  • There's no reason to allow them:

    They are often obscene and play no part in any beneficial role to humanity. Unlike other forms of parody or expression they do not encapsulate the views of a person but instead simply are spam of the highest order. It is not a form of any plausible, intelligible communication whatsoever.

  • Freedom of Speech CAN and WILL be abused.

    It's like freedom itself. "Freedom" is the right to do anything, even things like smuggling drugs, stealing, killing people, etc.. That's why laws are made. To control bad deeds due to freedom. Same goes with chain messages. A gullible person may repost that message/do what the message says (like: "subscribe to my channel or your mother will die in 3 weeks" or "like this comment and you'll kiss your crush tomorrow) out of mostly feeling threatened and/or curious. It's okay for me to advertise their own channel, but tricking/scaring people for the person's own good is not the way to go.

  • It's free speech

    Even though more often then not the content of these chain emails are morbid there is no evidence that the circumstances in these letters actually happen. More often then not they just say to forward and no further harm will be done. There are more malevolent letters out there but it is up to the readers discretion what they do. I have read many of these letters and nothing has happened. To use these letters as an excuse for doing bad things is ludicrous. People are responsible for what they do not an letter online. And if you can't handle it then you probably shouldn't be online.

  • Try and make computers smart enough to detect them

    Well, unless you want actual people sitting 24/7 watching numerous videos' chats looking to see if someone has posted a chain message. Reporting them is the most that can happen at the moment. I don't know how you would be able to ban them completely. Maybe I'm missing something here?

  • Read the U.S Constitution, silly!

    At least in the United States and in other countries that have documents similar to our constitution, chain letters should NOT be banned because of our freedonbof speech. Although these chain letters do tend to be very ludicrous, false and attention-seeking, we have the right to comment on social media with chain letters. They are irksome, however.
