I have a business email that is forwarded to my personal email, and I was wondering, if the personal email was again forwarded back to the business email (which the fwd would be a new email that would get forwarded) would this cause an endless loop of ∞ emails? ... Thus causing the internet to implode on itself?

Only if you google it.

If you google google that also causes severe UTP cable heating which in effect slows down the internet as they clog with melting packets. You need really long pipe cleaners to fix it.

Don't google it.

No because the server would recognize that the FWD was a FWD of itself and not send it again.

100% sure

If anything, it would shut the website down temporarily, if anything, as it would exceed the bandwidth limits of the site after a while. However, DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, which pretty much entail just that are punishable by law and I wouldn't be surprised if the site itself had preventative measures in place for preventing such a thing. Bottom line: don't do it.

Wow...that hurts my brain too...

I take any spam I get and forward it back to the sender...most times that kills it.

Also...when I get stuff....I copy it...(ie: "You have been selected...etc, etc...")...into a new mail and tell the sender...(ie: "You have been selected...won...etc..").

Amazingly, it all ends there....

I think it would be alright.
However, when the Elders of the Internet loaned out the Internet for a business presentation, it was noted that Googling Google is not recommended and WILL break the Internet.
Let that serve as a warning.

Obviously he did not google it.

Thankfully!
