OMG: Anyone know how to stop students from sending mass emails to you?

I've received 5 emails so far asking for notes in exchange for coffee, food, money, etc.

    1. As someone whose computer who died during exams, it does happen!

  2. Every time I get one of those emails I secretly hope the sender fails their exam.

  3. Every time I get those emails I send people my full notes. I'm a part time student and my notes are quite good, as I have time to review and add to them after classes (a studying technique as well). The world doesn't revolve around me. If I can make a difference in someone's life (legitimate request or not) with as little as sending an email, I will.
    No one goes to school to fail on purpose! Maybe that person was lazy and skipped classes, but there's usually a reason for it (family, emotional, etc). I've been in not-so-great places in my life, so I can sympathize.
    Don't be an asshole! Send your notes, its not doing you any harm and could change someone's life!

  5. I've gotten those emails plenty of times and never (NEVER) has the person indicated in their email which course they were missing notes for.

    I've always wondered why people can't just ask their friends, or a classmate that sits near them for help. I've missed a total of 4 classes in my first 3 years of undergrad and it was never hard to get notes from someone.

    It's also important to note that since pretty much everyone in math takes handwritten notes, I think it's ridiculous to ask someone over an email to scan them all to a stranger.
